Black History Month
Zimbabwe Family: “History, Representation, Identity and Diversity” explores the Zimbabwean diaspora, and the spread of Zimbabwean families across the United Kingdom.
ZiMNA is inviting you to celebrate Black History Month.
The Black History Month is an annual observance originating in the United States. The story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. In the United Kingdom, Black History Month was first celebrated in October 1987 in London (The year which was also coincidentally the 150th anniversary of Caribbean emancipation and the 25th anniversary of the Organization of African Unity, an institution dedicated to advancing the progress of African states).
This year ZIMNA-UK will be focusing on the Zimbabwean origin health professionals’ perspective of working in a foreign country from the 60’s. We will hear from different professionals talking about their journey and how they overcame the barriers they faced. Some have now moved back to Zimbabwe and have made a positive impact in our beloved country. We will be promoting achievements by Zimbabwean and other people of African descent.
A night to be remembered in the UK.
