Black History Month comes to QMSU and BLSA in a few days, starting on Monday 1st October! This is the 2nd time Black History Month is being celebrated across the university, and it's set to be better than ever! You have the opportunity to try out new things and learn more about Black British History, a culture that has heavily impacted and contributed to our current society.
