This week marks the start of Black History Month 2018 and The University of Manchester are kicking things off this Wednesday with an event at the heart of the city campus. This year’s event focuses on the contributions made to Manchester and Britain by people from BAME backgrounds. It will feature a keynote speech from local-born poet SuAndi, as well as exhibitions of material from the archives of the Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre and the John Rylands Library, amongst other talks and performances.
