Celebrating Black British Heroes

As Black History Month draws to an end, I’ve written an article for The Biographies celebrating Black British heroes. These heroes are redefining what it means to be black as they are using their platforms to discuss a variety of issues that affect people of colour. Once upon a time, issues such as gentrification or colourism weren’t even discussed so it’s about time our struggles are discussed and our triumphs are celebrated.

I also wrote an article about Notting Hill Carnival back in August, click here to read it.

Who are your black heroes? Did you do anything to commemorate Black History Month?

I love to hear from you so feel free to leave a comment.

  1. In America Black History Month is February. Here October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Pastor Appreciation Month. I’m sure there are more, it’s hard to keep track!
    As for my heroes, I have a deep appreciation and admiration for anyone involved in the Underground Railroad during the times of slavery in the not-so-United States.
