Black History Month in Bristol
Explore Black heritage in Bristol by e-scooter
In addition to our Bristol City Guide we want to mark Black History Month with some important sites to visit that promote knowledge and understanding of Black History and culture. Bristol’s ships were central to the slave trade and, years later, descendants of those slaves arrived from the Caribbean in the 1950s as part of the Windrush generation.
As well as many specific events marking Black History Month, we invite you to visit sites that acknowledge and celebrate contributions made by Black people to the cultural and economic development of Bristol and the region.
