Black History Month Carnival at LSU
Loughborough Students’ Union will be hosting a carnival for the first time as part of their Black History Month programme this year.
Each year, the Students’ Union puts on a series of events as part of Black History Month in October, which promotes black culture and heritage and commends black contributions to society in the UK. This year’s events also include a hip hop dance workshop and numerous discussion evenings related to the experiences of the BME community.
The carnival will be taking place on Wednesday 25 October in the Students’ Union from 5pm-9pm, with the theme of celebrating the black community in Loughborough. It will feature performances from the University’s students as well as performances from Scratchylus and Empress Reggae who are touring around UK universities as part of Black History Month.
There will also be various stalls from welfare and diversity associations at the University – plenty of dancing too!
All of the free events are open to students and staff at the University and have been organised by the Ethnic Minorities Network in collaboration with the Afro-Caribbean, Nigerian and Ghanaian societies at the Students’ Union.
