black history month

Black History Month coming up in October...

Toby Mossop
editor at Chartwell Speakers

Black History Month is a time to celebrate black history, heritage and culture, and not just the iconic figures that have contributed so much, but all the unsung heroes across the country, from every sector and community. It’s also a time for continued action to tackle racism, reclaim Black history, and ensure Black history is represented and celebrated all year round.​

As we look forward to celebrating Black History Month in the UK this October, you and your organisation have a wonderful opportunity to be part of the national events and celebrations. Join us in honouring the accomplishments and pride of Black Britons in every area of endeavour throughout our country. 

Chartwell has a range of fantastic speakers who talk about their own experiences and help audiences to target biases and to understand the importance of inclusivity for all, some of whom can be seen below:
