Black History Month

October sees the return of Black History Month, an annual celebration of the history, culture and achievements of black people in the UK and the vital part they have played in the development of this country.

As part of the borough's celebrations, Merton Heritage Service has produced a special resource page page for the Merton Memories website. This features a range of online displays, films, recommended weblinks, research guides, quizzes, children's resources and information on local organisations. You can also view filmed interviews with members of the Caribbean community, sharing their memories of life and work in the UK.
