Students and Staff Celebrate Black History Month

Thursday 1 November 2018

During October, Richmond upon Thames College's (RuTC) Students’ Union and Welfare Hub organised activities to celebrate Black History Month. The month was initiated by Cambridge University’s talk and workshop, where students got to know the renowned university, student life at one of its colleges and how it works on ethnic minority representation.

Every Thursday, the refectory offered additional menu options inspired by African and Caribbean dishes and culture. Also in the refectory, display boards informed students and staff about less known black history heroes. On an interactive board, everyone could pin their heritage on a map, showing a worldwide representation of RuTC.

The month was concluded by a screening of Black Panther and long term wise, a social action group in support of students identifying as Black, Asian and of ethnic minorities was launched. It will help to increase student voice, college experience and activities throughout the year.
