A Series: Black History Month


Welcome back to yet another post by Melanin Talks. If you have me on twitter then you’ll know how excited I am to start the Black History Month (BHM) series on my blog. I will incorporate the different BHM posts along with my Blogtober ones that I have prepared. BHM is important to me because when it comes to representation and Black history, I feel as though it’s something that continually needs to be celebrated more (especially for the people at the back). As often it is not spoken a lot about by people. BHM (in the UK) lasts from 1st October – 31st October, whereas in the US it was from 1st February – 28th February.

I will talk about a variety of topics where each will raise awareness and celebrate our beautiful melanin skin, which God has blessed us with. You can look forward to seeing at least 1 BHM post per week, if not more haha. I hope you like the sound of it so far because they’ll be a passionate read.

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots – Marcus Garvey

Here are the titles of my blog posts for Black History Month at no particular order:

  • YSJ ACS: the life of Frederick Douglass
  • Being Black: representation matters
  • Be Bold: 50 shades of chocolate
  • Just Like Me: a list of Black actors
  • Film: systematic history of slavery
  • Unapologetically Black: celebrating my melanin
  • BHM: music and slam poetry (TBC)
  • Slavery: British history with Reni Eddo-Lodge

You’re probably sick of me repeating myself, but I really do look forward to you all seeing what I have prepared for the posts above.

Till tomorrow!

Yours Truly,

It’s great that you’re spreading awareness and having your say on these events! What an amazing idea! Alex x
