This month is Black History month. You can find more about this here: http://www.blackhistorymonth.org.uk/
In this post, I would like to celebrate the achievements of one black person very close to home.
Bert Williams MBE is the driving force behind Brighton and Hove Black History. In the Summer of 2017, he received an honorary Doctor of Letters from this university for his contribution to the promotion of race equality in the local region.
I know Bert through work he did for Brighton Museum & Art Gallery and I still see him of an occasion at reggae gigs. He is a lovely guy and a terrific representative of his community, very worthy of his honorary doctorate.
