North Somerset’s Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Network will host a free-to-join online discussion tomorrow (Saturday) as part of Black History Month.
Taking place on Zoom, the Wellbeing Cafe will focus on how our history has shaped present-day life and can influence the future.
BME Network has supported people of colour across North Somerset for 14 years.
Weekly wellbeing cafes are offered by the charity to combat loneliness during the pandemic.
Before this week’s talk, Ian Noah will touch upon the Sierra Leone history of his family - exploring events from the past and how this affects life today and in the future.
