Black History Month was celebrated in the UK 1987 when it was organised by the activist Akyaaba Addai-Sebo who, at the time was the coordinator for special projects for the Greater London Council. The first Black History Month was celebrated only in London, but in the years since, the celebration has spread across the whole UK. The main aims of Black History Month are to celebrate the achievements and contributions of black people not just in the UK, but throughout the world and also to educate all on black history.
