In review: Black History Month 2022
This October, Morley College London unveils its plans for Black History Month, led by its ground-breaking Literary Prize for Unpublished Writers of Colour, now in its second year.
The Morley Prize for Unpublished Writers of Colour will be announced on Thursday 20 October 2022 on an evening celebrating the innovation, commitment to social justice, accessible education and equality of opportunity that Morley’s proud history demonstrates.
This year’s Black History Month cultural offer centres on musical and artistic tributes to Samuel Coleridge Taylor who lived in South London for part of his professional career and whose works were performed in the area. We’re also celebrating with courses, taster sessions and podcasts to educate and inspire.
As usual, Morley Radio is hosting a wealth of podcasts and material relating to music, literature, history and community stories. We are also delighted that our Big Band students are performing at the Mayor’s inaugural Adult Learning Awards at City Hall on Wednesday 5 October.
We would like to thank our partner organisations Rachel Mills Literary (RML) and Learning Through the Arts for their support.
A full programme of Morley College London’s Black History Month activities open to the general public, free or at a subsidised cost, is available here:
