Black History Month

Black History Month 2021’s theme is ‘Proud to Be’ and here at Walsall for All, we believe it represents an opportunity to look at identity and to look deeper at the individual experiences of different ages, nationalities and backgrounds as well as the common challenges and perceptions experienced across all of our Black communities.

This will strengthen service provision, increase understanding in Walsall of these communities, resulting in reduced tensions and negativity towards them.
