Black History Month

The month of October marks Black History Month in the UK and we at Intellect would like to take this opportunity to celebrate the history, heritage and culture of Black people around the world. This is a time to question, to reevaluate and to stand united against racism in all its forms. We want to take this opportunity to look forward and to highlight the work of the Black academic community and to place a spotlight on issues affecting Black people across the world.
