Stories and who inspires you

Black History Month UK is to share, celebrate and highlight Black communities and their stories. You don't need to be a journalist or a writer to get involved. Tell us what's important to you - whether it's a story from your own life or community, your thoughts on Black History, a person or event that deserves celebrating, or anything connected to Black history, heritage and culture - past, present or future.

This activity is underway through our local schools in Bury, through our Youth Outreach team and is being promoted through the borough's Community Cohesion Group and community led MEG-N group.

During the month stories and inspiration will be added here - and will continue to be added here beyond Black History Month 2022, to be a rolling profile of stories and inspirations in Bury.
