Have you ever wondered why February is celebrated as the Black History Month or what are the origins behind this celebration? Where it is observed and when it was recognized? If you do, then this event is the right place to start satisfying your curiosity. We will have a simple presentation about Black History Month followed by a moderated open discussion.

Activity/Event Schedule (all times are in London/GMT Time):
5:30 PM – 5:45 PM: Introductions, Socializing, and casual chit-chat
5:45 PM – 6:05 PM: Presentation about Black History Month
6:05 PM – 7:00 PM: Open Discussion about the topic

In the discussion part, we will try to answer few questions such as: Do you see the gap/divide in the treatment of the black community is about to be closed or not? What are the best resources to learn more about Black History? What are the best books or movie/series productions that talk about the abolition of slavery and people of African descent's empowerment and enablement? If you have more questions to answer feel free to add them below in the comments section before the event day.

Mohammad Yuzbashi is our Guest Speaker for this event.
