Black History Month
Black History Month, also known as African-American History Month in the US, is an annual observance in Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the United States. It began as a way for remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It is celebrated annually in the United States and Canada in February, as well as in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Republic of Ireland in October.
We mark Black History Month with these specially selected images recognising black history, arts and culture around the world.
