Black History Month

Black History Month

In October this year, we will be marking Black History Month, an opportunity to celebrate the achievements, contributions and histories of Black people in the UK and around the world.

Black History Month

At Queen Mary we will be celebrating Black History Month 2023 with a programme of virtual events, initiatives and communications from 1 - 31 October.

The theme for 2023 is: 'Saluting our Sisters'.

Black History Month is an annual celebration that highlights the contributions, success, and achievement of the Black community. This year, the national theme is ‘Saluting our Sisters’. 

Queen Mary University of London seeks to be the most inclusive university of our kind, anywhere, by 2030. We are proud to be a university that opens the doors of opportunity to anyone with the potential to succeed. We are also proud to celebrate how diverse our communities are, with over 170 nationalities and 75% of our undergraduate students coming from a Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic background.

Queen Mary is on a long and deep journey to tackle racial inequalities and this work is underpinned in our People, Culture, and Inclusion Enabling Plan. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment where our staff and students from all ethnic and racial backgrounds can thrive and this is highlighted in our People, Culture, and Inclusion Enabling Plan.
