In our fourth vlog for Black History Month, University of Birmingham Guild of Students President Tobi Adeyemi explains why marking it is so vital, particularly in the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter protests.
She thinks Black History Month is an opportunity for students to 'actualise their own ideas and make change'.
She says: "Black History Month is a month to celebrate Black history and culture, and to educate people about the history that has very much shaped our society as we know it today.
"This year I really really look forward to it because we'll be changing how we talk about history, and reflecting in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement on how we can reform the narrative of our Black history."
Watch what Tobi has to say:
The University of Birmingham's Guild of Students will, this year, be holding a free, open, online conference on decolonising the curriculum, and what this means in practice. It's taking place on 28-30 October and they are currently looking for speakers to take part. More details and how to register your interest can be found here.
