As part of BH365 join us for an evening with Bishop Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Bishop of Dover.

We have moved away from the month-long approach to Black History and are committed to celebrating and educating for the full year. 

About Black History365 Rt Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin says

"As a woman of Caribbean heritage – I am aware that I am a descendant of enslaved people. I have read their stories and made myself watch several movies and documentaries depicting their lives. Entertainment it was not, for me, these were moments of deep reflection.

I am delighted that CCCU has a 365-day approach to Black History Month. After all, ‘this is all our history’. Why? Because my story is your story, and your story is my story. Our stories are intertwined. I am here because you went there!

I encourage engagement with ‘Black History Month’ because it is about reimagining the kind of world we want to live in and what kind of legacy we want to leave behind for our children’s and grandchildren’s generations to come."

We warmly invite you to join us on this special evening to celebrate and salute the amazing accomplishments of Rt Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Bishop of Dover. Bishop Rose will share insights into her career and how she has paved the way for generations to come.

She has oversight for Canterbury Diocese which stretches from Maidstone southwards and includes the Weald, Romney Marsh, Ashford, Dover, Thanet, Faversham, Sittingbourne and the Isle of Sheppey.
