Hackney Black History Month 2011

Today see's the start of Hackney Black History Month, the borough's annual celebration of the contribution that Black African and Carribean communities have made both here in Hackney and across the whole world.

Over the coming month, a wide range of events, including storytelling, poetry workshops, and film screenings will be happening across the borough - you can download the full programme of events here.

One of the centerpieces of the Month is 'Our African Roots' a new exhibition opening at Hackney museum which focuses on culture, identity and linkages back home in the Hackney African community. The exhibition - which includes exhibits from the Royal geographic Society and the Horniman Museum - opens on October 11th.
