11am – 12pm
In addition to the customary lighting of the remembrance candle, this first session of our celebration for Black History Month looks at African, Caribbean and Islamic dress.
Attendees will learn about the meaning of different styles, patterns and colours. Speakers will also discuss where the clothing originates, and for which occasions it can be used.
The session will finish with a showcase of Black Heroes and History Makers (#HHM), as submitted by UNISON members.
