Black History Family Day @ Brighton Dome and Museum, Sat 9 Nov
Brighton and Hove Black History Group’s family day will be taking place this Saturday at Brighton Dome and Museum, from 12-5pm.
The event will be a celebration of African-Caribbean Arts and Culture, and entry is free. Guests will have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities, including sand painting, plant pot decorating and dance workshops. There will also be talks on the black history of Brighton, live music, cooking demonstrations and street food stalls offering the incredible flavours of East Africa, Sene-Gambia and the Caribbean.
Brighton and Hove Black History is a small, grassroots, community organisation whose primary aim is to challenge racism by raising awareness of the multicultural history of our city. Black History Month has been celebrated in Brighton since 2003, where it was first held at The Old Market. Visit the organisation’s website to find out more about their work.
The full programme for the event can be accessed here. You do not need to register in advance for tickets, just turn up on Saturday for what promises to be a fun-packed day and an opportunity to learn more about African-Caribbean culture.
