Date: 10am to 12 noon on Friday 7 October

Venue: Belfast. Details of specific location provided after booking.

Category: DiverseCity


This workshop will look at the theme of recognition - one of the themes adopted by the UN for People of African Descent (POAD).

The workshop will focus on the presence, cultures and contributions of people of African descent in NI. It will also highlight the role that ethnic minority political leaders and community organisations play in the quest for the right to equality and non-discrimination.

The workshop is one of three sessions, running throughout Black History Month on the theme of Toward a more Equitable NI: Focusing on the UN declared International Decade for People of African Descent. Each session will use humour, poetry and conversation to open discussion around black history, equity, the history and diversity of our African and Caribbean Communities, barriers to inclusivity and the quest for the right to equality and non-discrimination. 

Registration for the event is essential. To register, email

This event is part of our DiverseCity programme, exploring our diverse and shared stories and the communities, cultures and traditions that make Belfast.
