Black History Month 2023

We will be celebrating Black History Month throughout October.

Black History Month is a momentous occasion to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions of black people to British society.

Throughout October, we will be celebrating, discussing and highlighting Black History which will include talking to members of our Inclusion Strategy Advisory Group about their thoughts on the month and its importance within football, hosting a webinar with FA Regional Coach Development Officer | Diversity & Inclusion (East Region) Nimesh Patel, and speaking to players within the #NorfolkFootball community. 



Black people have always been at the forefront of social justice movements, fighting against oppression and paving the way for change. However, despite their countless contributions to society, the achievements of black women, in particular, have too often been overlooked or forgotten. That is why, this year, Black History Month will be celebrating the exceptional achievements of black women.


The theme of ‘Saluting our Sisters’ highlights the crucial role that black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities. This year’s celebration will showcase pioneering black women who have made remarkable contributions to literature, music, fashion, sport, business, politics, academia, social and health care, and more.
