Black History Youth Awards 2019

Black History Month is a celebration of the contributions of African/afro Caribbean people in the UK. Black History Month takes place over the month of October! Black History Month is a month set aside to learn, honour, and celebrate the achievements and resilience of black people currently and throughout history. This dedicated month has led to Cultures CIC creating events specifically targeted for these celebrations.

Black history month began with the ‘Cultures Choir’ musical showcase described as “A collaboration of cultures in the community”. This was a Fundraising event that was established with the purpose of bringing the community together! Featuring uplifting live showcase including solos, duets, dance performances and combined choir performances.

Artists from different backgrounds joined together in a celebration of black history month. Included vocal showcase from beloved local artists such as Khaki, Bre Musiq, Ty Lewis, Tariro, Valencia K, Frikhan and many more!

 

Cultures CIC is also hosed its 6th Annual Black History Youth Awards & Fundraising Dinner on October 18th 2019 at Middlesbrough Town Hall. The awards Ceremony recognizes the contributions of black youth in the community by celebrating their achievements which further promotes Positive role models for Black youth in Tees Valley. The event also supports our mentoring project “its you and me” which supports our ethos ‘it takes a village to raise a child’.
