Make your mark in Black History Month

October marks Black History Month in the UK as a time to celebrate black culture, heritage, and history. The Students' Union are organising a program for the month and a range of empowerment events throughout the year. They are looking for alumni to join them for a festival of celebration on Friday 21 October 2022, or conversely, alumni who would be interested in being part of 'The Empowerment Project', a year-long initiative aiming to provide students from the global majority with employability skills, networking opportunities, and community.

Please get in touch if:  

  • Would like to speak to students about your journey or field
  • Are a black-owned business
  • Musician, performer or artist 
  • Food Vendor
  • Have opportunities for black students that we can advertise throughout the year

While the team have limited funding, this is a paid opportunity. If you would like to get involved please contact
