LMC Celebrates Black History Month 2021
Publication date: October 2021
Throughout October we're joining in the celebrations marking Black History Month to recognise the incredible richness and diversity of Black and Brown heritage in the UK.
People from African and Caribbean backgrounds have been a fundamental part of British history for centuries, but many people believe this contribution to society is often overlooked, ignored or distorted. Black History Month gives everyone the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of black heritage and culture.
All this month we'll be publishing stories illustrating the great contributions made to medicine by people of Black and Brown heritage, and also highlighting important medical stories and issues which many people won't be aware of.
