Celebrating Black History Month

People from African and Caribbean heritage have been a part of British history for centuries. In that time they have made great contributions to British society. Campaigners believe, however, that these contributions all too often have been overlooked, or even distorted.

Black History Month, which falls every October in the UK, is a time to share, highlight and celebrate the vast contribution made by black people to British society.

This year the theme for Black History Month is ‘Saluting our sisters’. The achievements of black women in particular have often been overlooked or forgotten. So this year Carers Trust will be sharing the stories of black women who are unpaid carers for their family members.

We hope you find reading the stories and interviews below inspirational. Rochelle have spoken to Carers Trust about their experiences as black carers. Jaycee and Antoinette describe how they found support to launch their own creative businesses alongside caring for their parents.
