February is Black History Month in the US and Canada. If you are in the UK, plan ahead for BHM now by taking a look at Black Cultural Archives (BCA) - the only national repository of Black history and culture in the UK. A public institution open to everyone, the growing archive collection offers insight into the history of people of African and Caribbean descent in Britain.

BCA promotes the teaching, learning and understanding of the African people’s contribution, which enables the public to learn and connect with hidden histories via an extensive learning programme of exhibitions, courses, school workshops, lectures, public events and a dynamic youth forum.
