Leicester welcomes Black History Month


Georgina Baker

Black History Month is showcasing why Leicester is one of the best diverse cities in the country.

University of Leicester student Juanita Chetty said: “Being from African-Caribbean ancestry, my grandparents moved to Leicester to start a new life.

“I think it is wonderful to see so many of my people and other backgrounds celebrating where they came from.

“These events have even taught me things I never knew about my heritage.”

The next main events is the Leicester Amika Choir’s 10th Anniversary at the Peepul Center on Saturday at 7:30pm tickets are £9.
