Black History Month UK has launched its new campaign to mark BHM2021 (October). Inspired by the 2020 Black Lives Matter events, the new campaign is called 'Proud To Be'. It invites Black and Brown people of all ages throughout the UK to share what they are proud to be - Proud To Be Black, Proud To Be Brown, Proud To Be Black & LGBTQ+, Proud To Be Me. To celebrate, the University has planned a programme of thought-provoking events and activities across the campus, across the City and on-line – to raise awareness, share our knowledge, and learn from each other
Today is World Mental Health Day 2021. Coming hot on the heels of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year's theme – Mental Health in an Unequal World – could not be more timely.

As part of our Race Equality Project, and in celebration of BHM 2021, we are proud to be launching a new programme in our Diversity and Inclusion Lecture Series later this month. Race Matters will join our successful Be Inspired! and Young Minds programmes, and will offer thought-provoking, lived-, and insightful narratives that aim to broaden attitudes toward the topic of race, exploring and challenging discrimination in a multidimensional way
