Black History Month takes place in October and it’s a celebration of the history, achievements and contributions of Black people.

To mark this, we asked The Open University’s BAME Staff Network to recommend resources that relate to Black History Month. We also gathered resources suggested through other staff networks.You can find these recommendations below. We hope they give you a great starting point to learn more about Black history and experiences. Our thanks go to the BAME Staff Network for their contributions.
