DESCRIPTION

Merseysides Black History Month celebrations are amongst the largest in the country and attract visitors from all over the UK and Europe, receiving local and national coverage. Since 2003 those celebration activities have been organised by The Merseyside Black History Month Group. Here we present the calendar of events for 2012

TRANSCRIPT

  • Merseyside Blackhistory Month Group

  • We are pleased to present to you the 2012 Calendar of events for BlaCk history Month on Merseyside.Over the last eight years, Merseyside Black History Month Group has continued to develop and work tirelessly to ensure that the recognition and celebration of Black History is promoted, supported and encouraged by all representatives of the various sectors, individuals and groups across Merseyside.

    Notwithstanding the current economic climate we continue to develop Black History Month celebrations on Merseyside, with the help of our partners and sponsors. This is a remarkable achievement allowing Merseyside to be one of the few regions to continue to give a high profile to the promotion of Black History Month.

    the 2012 Cultural food feast will be held on sunday 14th october at the sefton park palm house and the Black achievers awards ceremony will be held at st Georges hall on saturday 27th october.

  • These are our two main events but we hope you will also take this opportunity to attend and celebrate other events highlighted in this calendar. We are looking forward to the 2012 celebrations as we continue to develop both the organisation and our activities. Youth and educational events play a prominent part in our work this year.

    We hope you will continue to support the ethos behind the development of Black History Month activites, but remember that Black History is not constrainted to October. For example we were involved in hosting the guest of honour for this years Slavery Remembrance Day, Martin Luther King III, the eldest son of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jnr, in his visit to the Liverpool Black Community. His high profi le visit has been described as putting our region centre stage in the global ght for human and civil rights.

    on Behalf of our Board i Wish you a happy and eduCational oCtoBer, BlaCk history Month 2012.

Artist and activist Andrea Bowers amplifies the launch of Liverpool as a City of Sanctuary for asylum seekers and refugees.Ponte, 2012. The Ponte building has dominated the Johannesburg skyline since the 1970s This residential block became a key symbol for the social and economic downturn that followed the arrival of social democracy in 1994. Subotzky and Waterhouse became fascinated by the fictions and myths projected onto the structure. These moments have been stitched together, resulting in an internal and external panoramic projection of this iconic structure.time: 10.00am - 6.00pm venue: The Cunard Building, Water Street, Liverpool L3 1ES Cost: Free
