Norfolk Black History Month brings together a diverse set of people to celebrate the contribution of black people past and present. It provides a platform for Norfolk Constabulary to promote community cohesion through building trust and confidence among our diverse communities. It also gives everyone the opportunity and confidence to look into and appreciate their own and others history and heritage.

Over 40 events will be held across Norfolk during October. Norfolk Black History Month can help to promote diversity, challenge prejudice and engage with Norfolk’s diverse communities.

Corporate Equality & Diversity Manager Abraham Eshetu said: “The Constabulary is extremely pleased and proud to once again be supporting Norfolk Black History Month. It provides the Force with an opportunity to help celebrate the contribution of our diverse communities. I’d urge everyone to take a look at the website and maybe go along to some of the various events that are taking place over the next four weeks.”
