Our Music, Black Music

Friday 16 October at 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

The Global Lounge has partnered with the BME Network to invite you to Our Music, Black Music, as part of Black History Month.

 

Join in with this virtual exploration of Black music, from rock to neo-soul to highlife. Hosted by students, in collaboration with Black cultural societies, they’ll take you on a musical journey – all you need to do is sit back, enjoy the music and cast your vote on which host you think has won each genre during this interactive live DJ set!

 

To join in with this event, simply head to @bristol_su on Instagram live at 6 pm.

 

This event is part of Black History Month. Check out the full programme of events on the SU website and follow the BME Network on Facebook and Instagram.

 

A statement from Khadija Meghrawi, Chair of the BME Network at Bristol University, about Black History Month:

 

“Black History is far too neglected and should be represented all year around. The purpose of this month is both to empower Black students and to refocus the energy on how to be an active ally, equipping non-Black students with the tools to educate themselves and question the structures around them. These discussions are particularly relevant in Bristol, which is facing the challenge of ensuring that Colston’s statue being taken down is not where the activism ends.”
