Black History Month

CAHN Greater Manchester Black History Month Launch Event

CAHN’s Black History Month Launch Event aims to celebrate black history beyond the stories of slavery and racism in order to spotlight the phenomenal achievements of the black community over time.

 The event consists of promotion for black businesses, guest speakers from the community sharing inspiring words, performances that reflect the culture and diversity of the community and forms of art that reflect the black experience.


 The event is attended by numerous members of communities across Greater Manchester and dignitaries within the region. The event has been hosted at Manchester Cathedral and streamed online.
