Black History Month

Black History Month will take place this October, giving the chance to consider the achievements of important black figures in History such as Martin Luther King and Mary Seacole. There are plenty of resources available and it is even commemmorated in websites such as this one (from BBC 1Xtra...) However there is concern in some areas that celebrating the achievements of one minority may exaggerate the achievements of particular individuals, warp their importance within the overall context, or make other minorities feel marginalised. This Radio 4 programme, presented by Josie D'Arby, sets out to explore these issues further, and you can catch it here until Friday. What is your opinion on this?
