Black History Month takes place every October in the UK to mark the impact of black people throughout history.
This year, Suffolk Libraries are celebrating Black History Month with a selection of insightful and inspiring children’s books available on our catalogue, including titles on the Windrush generation and iconic figures in black history. You can view the full list of titles on our website.
The Museum of East Anglia Life are hosting an exhibition on Dining with U.S. Innovators: Black People Who Changed Food History, which pays tribute to the lives and accomplishments of inspiring black innovators who transformed the way we grow, process and prepare food.
The exhibition opens on 7 October. More information can be found on the Museum of East Anglian Life website.
