Black History Month Family Fun Day

On Saturday 25th October 2014, Black History Studies organised a ‘Black History Month Family Fun Day’ at St Ann’s Library in Tottenham.

Delegates attending had the opportunity to meet up with other families, network, have fun and celebrate our contributions to World History.

On the day, we had Young Entrepreneurs and stalls selling Books, Cakes, Jewellery, Health Products, DVDs, Comics etc. Charmaine Simpson gave an inspirational presentation titled ‘Young, Gifted & Black’. Paul Buhagiar ran a Kemetic Yoga session which was popular with the young people and parents.

To get the young people thinking, Charmaine played the Who’s Conscious game with some young people which was fun as the young people were very competitive and enthusiastic. Dwayne Patrick held an ‘I Can’ sessions which sounded fun. It was a shame that I could not sit in the session as I had to pack up as we had to be out of the building on time.

We screened the inspiration film Chrissy which went down well with the parents and young people. Overall, the day went well and we met some new people that now know the work of Black History Studies. A big thanks to Sis Dawn Golbourne for her support with this event.
