Official Launch of Norfolk BHM 2009
Fri. 2 October 2009 | 7 - 11:00 PM
- Paulette Randall
It’s that time again… October is Black History Month! After last year’s success, being voted BHM Champions by Sugar Media, Norfolk BHM keeps going from strength to strength.
Guest will be entertained at an evening launch by local and national speakers and performers. This year’s invited national speaker is Paulette Randall. Paulette is one of the leading female black directors in Britain. She has directed renowned plays at the Royal Court Theatre and produced the highly successful Black British Sitcom Desmonds and Porkpie. Paulette currently chairs the board of the Clean Break Theatre Company and is a former artistic director of the Talawa Theatre Company.
- Jefferson & Whitfield
Tonia Mihill, our local speaker, coordinated the first Norfolk Black History Month in 2003, (with Kai Yin Low of NNREC) and continues to support BHM while working as a youth councillor for MAP and Off Centre, Community Librarian at the Norwich and Norfolk Millennium Library and UK coordinator of Pan Africa Development Education & Advocacy Programme!
Entertainment will be provided by comedy duo Jefferson & Whitfield and Jazz musician Pete LeTanka, not to mention the sweet taste of Caribbean food to tickle your tastebuds.
