About Black History Month

Black History Month (BHM) Afrikan History Month (AHM) is held every October in Britain, and February in USA and Canada

The aims are to:

- Promote knowledge of the Black History, Cultural and Heritage

- Disseminate information on positive Black contributions to British Society

- Heighten the confidence and awareness of Black people to their cultural heritage

The origins of BHM go back to 1926 when Carter G Woodson, editor for thirty years of the Journal of Negro History, established African Caribbean celebrations in America. It is still celebrated there in February each year

Black History at Theatre in the Mill

In recognition of the celebrations surrounding Black History Month, Theatre in the Mill has put together a small programme of work that explores the Black and Asian experience in Britain and further asks questions about how best we support these stories being told.
