Liverpool is coming together to celebrate and reflect on Black History this month.
The event is one of the biggest cultural celebrations of the year.
Many organisations, universities and businesses are collaborating to create a showstopper programme. The next few weeks are about showcasing talent and educating others in the city.
What is going on this week in Liverpool?
Tomorrow evening, October 13, the 2-Step Collective Running Club go again.
“A new route, same energy”, says event space 24 Kitchen Street, where the run begins at 6.30pm.
2-Step Collective have partnered with the Anthony Walker Foundation and 24 Kitchen Street, creating weekly guided runs co-curated by local historian @westgaph.
The idea is to highlight important and impactful areas that resonate with Liverpool’s black history and community
The runs are every Wednesday in October. After tomorrow the next organised runs will be Wednesday 20 and 27 October. All runs are free to attend.
