DANCE, live music and craft activities will be among the events taking place as part of Black History Month.

Once again, Solihull Council and its partners will be highlighting the history and culture of African, African Caribbean and Asian communities.

The programme kicked off with a dance show at Solihull Arts Complex earlier this week.

But there’s no need to worry if you missed it, plenty more activities will be taking place until the end of the month.

On October 20 and 22, Solihull College will be hosting African drumming, a Black Heroes exhibition and painting workshops.

And on October 28, the Grace Academy will be inviting teenagers to take part in a cultural awareness day. The event will be another prime opportunity for the youngsters to get a flavour of different cultures.

Councillor Ken Meeson, leader of Solihull Council, said: “We are pleased to be celebrating Black History Month once again. The events recognise some of the major cultural festivals that are important to the communities in Solihull.

“I hope that local people will welcome the spirit of Black History Month and perhaps try something they have never done before.”
