Black History Month
October marks the start of Black History Month (BHM) , a time to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions of black people to British economy, culture, and history. The focus of BHM is about writing back into history those events and activities that have been overlooked or deliberately ignored in mainstream narratives.
This month in support of BHM join us for:
- Our annual Black History Month Service. This will take place in the Cathedral’s Main Space at 3 pm on Sunday 15th October. Liverpool Diocese’s Racial Justice Officer, Jennie Taylor will be talking to us about the Diocesan commitment to racial justice across all areas of our common life. This year's theme is 'Celebrating our Sisters' - honouring the achievements of Black women, amplifying their voices and challenging the systems that oppress them.
- Part One of our 2023 Micah Lecture: What it Means to 'do Justice' in Our Time. This will be presented by the Bishop of Liverpool - Right Reverend Doctor John Perumbalath.
- Part Two of our 2023 Micah Lecture : What it Means to 'do Justice' In our Time. This will be presented by Revd Professor Kelly Brown Douglas.
