For almost 40 years in the UK,  Black History Month is celebrated for the whole month of October. Generations of people of African and Caribbean heritage have made remarkable contributions to the UK and make up a diverse and rich culture that is celebrated across the country.

Black History Month has expanded and now includes people of Asian heritage, and how their contribution has shaped Britain.
