Black History Month

Black History Month is all about celebrating the past, present and future of Black culture and diversity.


Together, alongside LSE's Embrace network, LSE's EDI team, and our clubs and societies, we are celebrating Black History Month. Below, you can find a range of events organised to mark Black History Month.

We'll also be posting student stories, celebrating the impact of Black students at LSE throughout Black History Month, so make sure to take a look on our social media channels, or at the display in the Old Building.
