Black History Month | Walking in Their Footsteps | The Royal Foundation of St Katharine | Sunday, 21. October 2018

Black History Month recognises black history and achievements and it’s the 30th Black History Month in the UK this year.
Join us for a day of reflection and contemplation as we consider the path walked by those who came before; the first black British footballers, the first black British newsreader, the first black British model, the first black British MP, the first black British pilot. The list goes on and on and yet it’s still as important now as it ever was to acknowledge where we are and how far we have come.
Join us for an exploration into the magnificent world of you as a Black Person in the UK today!
Take time out to reflect on why you are where you are
Engage in visioning where you want to be heading.
What to ExpectWalking in their Footsteps workshop is a celebration event that will enable you to consider what you want for yourself on this day of recognition.

You may be coming to the workshop to:

give thanks for your strengths and wisdom

connect to your heart's desire
