BLACK HISTORY MONTH

This October marks the 30th Black History Month in the UK. At Brighton Students’ Union we are all about student inclusivity and celebrating the diversity of our membership. There are a range of events and celebrations throughout the month from the Film Society showing Get Out and Belle, to the ACS holding a debate and night out at Shoosh. We hope there is something for everyone and keep an eye out for a range of specials in the Basement Central café.
