October is Black History Month. A month dedicated to recognising the outstanding contributions that individuals of Black heritage have made.
In light of this, we are launching a new campaign Black and Beyond: Celebrating Black excellence.
This campaign is a student/staff collaboration and was prompted by our very own final year medical students, Khadija Owusu and Lucrece Wasolua-Kibeti, who were keen to see increased representation and celebration of our Black staff and students at St Georges, recognising the importance of role models from Black backgrounds. The development of the campaign has been supported by a range of staff and students.
Black and Beyond: Celebrating Black excellence aims to centre the contributions and achievements of our Black staff and students, featuring profiles of individuals from across our St George’s community. In celebrating excellence, the campaign aims to recognise the wide-ranging contributions these individuals have made in academia or beyond, and the different ways in which these achievements can inspire us.
This campaign will launch in October to celebrate Black History Month but the campaign aims to continue throughout the academic year as we recognise the importance of celebrating such individuals beyond this designated time period. It is also an opportunity for the institution to build a strong culture of allyship with the end goal of creating a truly inclusive environment for all.
Take a look at the phenomenal contributions so far:
"I think the thing that motivates me most is my quest for knowledge and having the opportunity to help someone realise their dream."
"Hopefully, my decision to follow my passion and to go against the status quo will encourage other young black students to do the same."
"University is going to be challenging, more challenging than you think, but nothing good ever came easy."
"My motivation comes from there being so much work in the world that needs to be done. We all have a unique potential to make change."
"I am keen to chart my path to show young black women that this is a career where they will succeed."
"Although most people do see past skin colour, it is still work in progress".
"You have to be hungry for something, you have to aspire to something! It’s true for any person of any colour."
"I do think that I have grown from everything that has happened to me, not only over these last four years, but throughout my life so far. There’s always a lesson to be learnt."
"I can see it from my parents and many other successful black people, that despite the oppression we have faced for centuries, we will continue to rise above it and excel in our fields."
"I have not had the easiest of journeys but I believe that my journey and life experiences have not just been for my growth; they are also testimony that you can achieve what you want if you put your mind to it."
