Black History Month

October is Black History Month

Black History Month 2017

Every year events and activities are held in Haringey to celebrate and recognise the huge contribution the black community have made.

Black in Haringey


On 1 December we held the official screening of our groundbreaking documentary about the history of black Haringey residents ‘Black in Haringey’. The documentary features interviews with actress Judith Jacobs, David Lammy MP and the owners of Haringey businesses including Body Music, Blooming Scent Cafe and Uncle John’s Bakery.

Black History Month 2016

October is Black History Month – in 2016 we had lots of events and activities to celebrate and recognise the huge contribution the black community have made.

In 2016 we explored Haringey's own Black History and paid homage to our own Black Heroes, including Dyke and Dryden, Haringey's first self made black millionaires (think Afro Hair and Beauty Show), Martha Osamor, Haringey Council's first Black leader, and Bernie Grant Tottenham's first Black MP.
