Black History Month will be celebrated this month, with a variety of activities taking place.
Luton Culture and Luton Poetry Society will be hosting a free poetry night on Saturday at Luton Central Library, where 12 poets will be reading work focusing on black culture and heritage, while there will also be musical performances. Schools and community centres across the town will be celebrating Black History Month too, with a whole host of events being held.
Cllr Hazel Simmons, Leader of Luton Borough Council, said: “Black History Month gives us a great opportunity to appreciate and celebrate black culture, music and food. As ever, there’s a great deal going on in the town to celebrate, particularly in our schools.
“I’d encourage everyone to get involved with Black History Month and enjoy the activities on offer.” For more information visit www.luton.gov.uk
