Black History Month Wales celebrations at the Millennium Centre

Tagged with:

The fourth pan-Wales Black History Month ends this weekend with a grand finale on Saturday 29 October at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.

The venue will host a number of free events between midday and 6pm, giving visitors the opportunity to experience a range of entertainers, performers, market stalls and participatory workshops reflecting the history and culture of Wales' African Diaspora communities.

Performers include SWICA's Maracatu Brazilian Carnival Dancers, world class award-winning hip-hop dance troupe Jukebox Juniors, and Bob Marley tribute band Bob Bailey and the Jailers. The special guest speaker is Jean-Robert Cadet of Haiti's Restavek, who is an advocate for enslaved children.

Black History Month has been running throughout October. In 2010, 7,000 people took part in the pan-Wales programme of workshops, exhibitions, lectures and special events. This year, up to 10,000 people are anticipated to attend the events during the month.

More details on Saturday's events and foyer performances can be found on the Wales Millennium Centre website, or visit the Black Voluntary Sector Network Wales (BVSNW) website for updates.
