Celebrating Black History Month with Students’ Union UCL

01 Oct 2020 | Advance HE October is Black History Month and at Advance HE we are delighted to share stories of Black success, experience and action in higher education.

In this vlog, Jim Onyemenam, Postgraduate Students’ Officer at University College London (UCL), tells us why Black History Month is so important and what Students’ Union UCL is doing to celebrate.

Jim says, “It is a significant moment across the entire year when the concerns of our Black community are brought to the fore…[which] underline almost every aspect of academic life at the University.”


Watch Jim explain more:

Sandy Ogundele is Black and Minority Ethnic Students’ Officer at UCL. She has designed a series of events for Black History Month entitled Black Futures – The Future is Now focusing on “how the past influences the future, how history and knowledge can be reclaimed, how we can make and imagine a liberated future for ourselves and how we can achieve justice.”
