The Origins of Black History – An Interview with Akyaaba Addai-Sebo

Subject

News; Celebrity; Black History Celebration

Description

Akyaaba Addai-Sebo is responsible for putting forward the concept of a Black History Month in Britain, into what we recognise today, and is celebrated throughout the country. What follows is an edited version of an interview with Kubara Zamani, producer and presenter at Nubiart Sound Radio which first appeared in October’s issue of New African. The inspiration for Black History Month came from an incident that happened at the GLC where I worked as the coordinator of special projects. A colleague of mine, a woman, came to work one morning, looking very downcast and not herself.
