Hackney’s Black History Season – two months of celebration

Hackney Council is currently hosting its Black History Season, a two-month showcase of contributions and achievements by those from the Black culture. The theme is “Stories Untold,” which will highlight those who have left their mark in the borough.

Often silenced and masked, this year’s Black History Season is meant to share intergenerational stories and voices from Black and Global Majority people. By celebrating these stories untold, the hope is they can continue to repair and prevent the hidden wounds of racial trauma on Black and the Global Majority children and families in Hackney. 

Until December 2022, Hackney Libraries, Hackney Museum, Hackney Archives, Children and Education services and Young Hackney will host an exciting, interactive and thought-provoking collection of in-person events, exhibitions and forums celebrating Black history and acknowledging the significant contributions of Black and Global Majority communities in Hackney.
