Celebrating UK Black History Month: Learning Resources, a Read & Watch List, and Content Creation Tools
This year’s UK Black History Month theme, Proud To Be, is about celebrating the Black experience. As a distributed company with employees around the world, including the United Kingdom, we believe that the more perspectives we embrace, and the more we learn about our teammates, the better we are at engaging and helping our global community.
This October, we encourage individuals and organizations to learn more about Black history, heritage, and culture in the UK. “Black British history is British history. It’s more than a month; it is interwoven in everything,” says Ama, a colleague based in Scotland. “We have changed landscapes in education, law, politics, work, and equality for all within the UK.” Black history is deeply embedded in UK culture, says Ama, from institutions — like the National Health Service — to music, sports, art, media, and popular culture.
Interested in learning more? We’ve compiled a list of staff recommendations:
- websites and organizations on WordPress
- books, films, and televisionby Black thinkers and creators in the UK
- blogging and website-building tools
Explore these resources this month — or bookmark them for learning and inspiration anytime.

October is Black History Month in the UK. We asked colleagues across WordPress.com for their recommendations for deeper learning and participation this month — and the rest of the year.
The history of blacks around the world is very important, as a minority in many societies or communities, black history has been marked by slavery, racism, violence and much torture inflicted on women, to children etc, although it is not over yet, but I think a month marked by reflections or even activities organized to mark these unforgettable moments is very important for black communities around the worldReplyLike
