Black History Month is a nationwide celebration of African and Caribbean culture, arts and history, which recognises the achievements and contributions of Black people to British society.

Black history is British history, and National Museums Liverpool want to celebrate Black achievement and success throughout October and beyond.

This month, there will be a wide programme of events taking place throughout National Museums Liverpool, including thought-provoking displays, topical talks and discussions, a series of film screenings, detailed insights and stories from their collections and author-led storytelling for children.

On National Museums Liverpool’s website, you can access educational stories, interviews, collections and features on Liverpool’s Black community from the display collections across their museums and galleries all year round.

Some of the events include:
