Black History Month 2019: Making the Invisible Visible

Black History Month highlights and celebrates the history and achievements of the Black community. Sheffield Hallam Students' Union has a series of events and student-led initiatives to empower students of colour, with discussions on existing structural barriers in society and how we can work on breaking them down.

Student leaders remain concerned at the diversity of our curricula, continued gaps in degree awarding and the BME graduate earning potential locally and across the wider sector.

Through a high-profile Black History Month and continued activity over the course of the year, we hope to initiate a student-led conversation over how we can work in partnership with our University on making continued improvements to the BME experience in years to come.
