Black History Month 2023
The University of Hertfordshire proudly celebrates Black History Month in October 2023, with this year's theme: 'Saluting our Sisters'.
Black History Month is a time for us all to pause, reflect, learn, and to broaden our understanding and challenge our knowledge and beliefs around black history and culture. It also provides us with an opportunity to celebrate the diverse community here at Herts.
From a concert featuring a piece by Florence Price, the first African-American woman to be recognised as a symphonic composer to a showcase of business start-ups and entrepreneurial journeys from black students and graduates, and a presentation about British-Ghanaian artist-filmmaker John Akomfrah, there is something at Herts for everyone to get involved with.

As part of our ongoing commitment to helping staff and students broaden their understanding and knowledge of black history, we have collated a range of resources to support formal and personal study.
