Black History Month in Liverpool
Explore Liverpool's Black heritage on an e-scooter
In addition to our Liverpool City Guide, we want to mark Black History Month with some important sites to visit in this great city that celebrate and preserve the African and Caribbean cultural heritage. According to the Liverpool Black Community Trail, the city’s Black community is the oldest in Europe, dating back to the mid 18th century when it became a port of entry for Black sailors, emancipated slaves and even student sons of African rulers.
As well as many specific events organised by Culture Liverpool throughout the month, hosting an array of cultural organisations, universities and Black businesses, take a Voiage through the historic and contemporary Black culture in Liverpool to learn about and connect with the real city.
