Hackney’s Black African and Caribbean history

Hackney Black History Season – October to December 2022

Here in Hackney we celebrate Black culture and history all year round. As we strive to be an anti-racist borough, it remains important to have focused time to learn, share and celebrate our African and African-Caribbean heritage and culture in Hackney and around the world.

This year’s theme is ‘Stories Untold’. The theme was developed by our Children and Education services, who, after hosting the groundbreaking Anti-Racist Praxis Conference in May 2022 and inspired by the ‘Warm Shores’ sculptures outside of Hackney Town Hall, wanted to center the often silenced, intergenerational stories and voices of Black and Global Majority people.

By celebrating these stories untold, we hope they can continue to unmask, repair and prevent the hidden wounds of racial trauma on Black and the Global Majority children and families in Hackney.
