Merseyside Black History Month Group – MBHMG (formerly Liverpool Black History Month Group – LBHMG) was established in 2008 following the hard work and dedication of the original steering group whose dedication and commitment from 2003 ensured that Black History Month was recognised, celebrated and supported across all sectors in Liverpool, which then expanded to Merseyside.
MBHMG since 2003 have co-ordinated the promotion of Black History Month across Merseyside to date and going forward will be introducing new elements of promotion, engagement and developments.
