Black History Month in Sheffield 

Be empowered, educated and entertained! Each October, Sheffield joins a national celebration to highlight Black history, culture and heritage, and empower people to take action against racism. 

From fascinating talks and thought-provoking film screenings to music performances that will get your blood pumping and feet tapping - there is something for everyone. The official theme for Black History Month 2023 is “Saluting Our Sisters” (and the #WEMATTER movement) to celebrate the many achievements of ‘African heritage’ women.

Events listed on this page have been collated in partnership with the African Heritage Culture Forum, who work with organisations across Sheffield to help raise awareness of the city’s diverse history and culture- you can see their year-round event listings here.
