There’s only four days left of October which means only four days left of Black History Month, a national celebration that aims to promote and celebrate Black contributions to British society.
We had a packed programme of events for the whole month and there is still time to take part in some more.
Today at the International Slavery Museum there is an arts and crafts session about the art of Adrinka from 1-4pm, a curator talk highlighting the representation of women in the Museum at 1pm and another talk from collector Leslie Braine Ikomi who will talk about the presence of Black people in Britain during the 18th and 19th centuries also at 1pm.
On Saturday 30 October lecturer Ron Noon will be giving a talk at the Merseyside Maritime Museum that looks at links between Liverpool and sugar.
Even if you don’t manage to come along to these events the International Slavery Museum also has exhibitions that may be of interest. Beyond the Boundary explores the relationship between cricket, culture, class and politics. Trafficked highlights the ongoing struggle to combat human trafficking around the world. Home alone: end domestic slavery explores the issue of the exploitation of domestic workers.
