Official BHM Launch and All Wales Black History Youth Awards
Official BHM Launch and All Wales Black History Youth Awards at Pierhead Building in Cardiff Bay hosted by Mark Drakeford AM
To celebrate BHMW 2018, the theme for the year is “ICONS OF BLACK WALES: 11thAnniversary 2018’’ (Hashtag #BHMWales11) we wish to recognise the achievements of young people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities in Wales. Last year, the first of these award ceremonies were held at the Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay. Led by Race Council Cymru, the awards ceremony was a huge success, with awards presented by Welsh Labour Assembly Member for Cardiff West Professor Mark Drakeford AM. The ceremony and winners received nationwide coverage and prime time spots on BBC News and ITV’s Newsweek.
This year, we aim even higher and we want you to be part of it so please nominate a deserving young black person.
The award ceremony will be led by the Race Council Cymru with awards being presented by the Welsh Labour Assembly Member for Cardiff West Professor Mark Drakeford AM at the Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay on Friday the 28th of September 2018.
