October marks Black History Month, a momentous occasion to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions of black people to British society. This year the campaign is focusing on celebrating the exceptional achievements of black women and #salutingoursisters.
At WM College we celebrate the culture, history and vibrant diversity of the local communities within Camden and the surrounding areas. We believe the diversity of our staff and learners is one of our strengths. We are an open and inclusive place to work and study, where regardless of faith, age, gender expression, race, ability, disability, sexual orientation, and economic status, all are welcomed. WM College is an environment where people feel valued, experience a sense of belonging and are empowered to move forward positively in their lives.
To celebrate Black History Season we are once again welcoming guest speaker Natty Mark Samuels from African School to host a series of FREE afternoon workshops, using chant, short prose and brain teasers, to celebrate the spiritual significance of the flora of Africa and the Caribbean, part of Rootical Folklore.
