Dance & donate!!!

For this year’s Black History Month, we are very excited to collaborate with Lush Exeter and young blood Somatic once again to put on a night of eclectic sounds from the African and Caribbean heritages.

We will use this money to support People of Colour in Devon’s schools and communities to create and provide a safe space to talk, share their experiences of racism, heal and work out how to move forward.

Global Book Club - Monday 2nd November 6pm

We will discuss My Name is Why by Lemn Sissay

This will be a virtual meeting - if you would like to join us email dde@globalcentredevon.org.uk for details

At the age of seventeen, after a childhood in a foster family followed by six years in care homes, Norman Greenwood was given his birth certificate. He learned that his real name was not Norman. It was Lemn Sissay. He was British and Ethiopian. And he learned that his mother had been pleading for his safe return to her since his birth.

This is Lemn's story: a story of neglect and determination, misfortune and hope, cruelty and triumph.
