What are your plans this weekend?
Welcome to our Black History Month. Every weekend at 9pm, we'll walk you through poignant stories and unheard voices about the fight for racial equality against the systemic injustice and discrimination faced by black people in the UK and beyond. Along with this, we will also bring you TV Premieres celebrating Black British lives, culture and their contribution to the national story. Saturdays and Sundays in October at 9pm.
And there is more to this. Giving a voice to unheard stories is embedded in our ethos. As the leading TV channel for social change we wanted to do more, so we've asked the Founder and the Director at the National Caribbean Heritage Museum Museumand to be our Digital Guest Editors for the month...and they've taken this role very seriously!
Find out the great stories they've gathered for you. Join the conversation >>
