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.</p><p>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. </p></li><li><p>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.</p><p>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.</p><p>on Behalf of our Board i Wish you a happy and eduCational oCtoBer, BlaCk history Month 2012. </p><p> feMi soWande Chair</p><p> feMi soWandeMerseyside Blackhistory Month Group</p></li><li><p>MERSEYSIDE BlaCk history Month 2012</p><p>15 septeMBer - 25 noveMBer 2012 _______________________</p><p>A selection of recent works by Mona Hatoum.Recent works, some which have never been seen in the UK, create a thread that helps the audience to navigate several spaces of the Cunard Building and other sites.
