Blackstory Partnership  in partnership with Birmingham City Council are the official organisers of Birmingham’s Black History Month 2019. As a part of this, we are producing a brochure and website for Black History Month 2019  The brochure will list events taking place in Birmingham during October and we would appreciate if you could assist us by providing details of all events and activities you have planned to celebrate this year’s Black History Month.  


  • Have you an event or activity that is taking place within the Birmingham boundaries? I mean do you pay your council tax to Birmingham City Council?
  • Is your event or activity taking place during the month of October 2019? 
  • Is it relevant to Black Minority Ethnic (BME) community?
  • Does your event or activity involve Young People? 
  • Do you want to promote your event/activity far and wide across Birmingham?
  • Does your event or activity raise awareness about the struggles, triumphs and legacies of BME communities in Birmingham?
  • Does your event or activity aim to educate, empower and motivate the wider Birmingham communities about Black History?
