Reigate College celebrates Black History month

Black history month

Throughout October Reigate College has been celebrating Black History month with a series of events and activities – and even some special African and Caribbean menus on offer in the Refectory. 

This week marked the end of the celebrations with two events organised by the SU, and open to all students and staff. 

On Tuesday 30th October, Jamaican-born photographer and media professional Neil Kenlock came into College to give a fascinating lunchtime talk about his work documenting the Black experience in the UK.

SU Equality Officer Lauren Aarons, who championed the event, said, “I feel very passionately about Black History, particularly Black British History, and I wanted to celebrate this in College. I was delighted that Neil Kenlock gave his time to share the reality of being a Black Person in the 1960s and 70s through his exceptional photographs and own experiences.” 

There was also a special screening of the film Black Panther later in the day, again organised by the SU.

Thanks to everyone involved in marking this important celebration of cultural diversity in the UK.
