Being Black in Luton

Back by popular demand celebrating Black History, and continuing to drive open and meaningful conversations relevant to the Black community in Luton, we have partnered with local community activists and businesses to bring you an evening discussion about what it means to be Black in Luton.

The evening will hear from members of the community, talking about their experiences, history and heritage. The positives and the challenges encountered, before opening the floor up for discussion.

Angel Miller

Founder and owner of No Ordinary Bookshop. Angel’s aim is to challenge stereotypes and the shortage of diverse literature. providing a window to the world of different cultures from the earliest age possible. Angel believes that when children read stories and texts that relate to their beliefs, customs and history it can inspire and empower them. “Inclusive representation can dissipate feelings of exclusion and alter negative belief systems by stretching their imagination beyond stereotypical ideas about them.”
