More than 100 residents celebrated Black History Month at a community event in Queen’s Park.
The Beethoven Centre in Third Avenue hosted the extravaganza which included a history of dance workshop and an African mask workshop for children.
In addition, guests were treated to poetry by Julie Isaac and Dernel Gabriel and music by John Blood & the Highlys and Leona at the event on Wednesday evening.
Bassam Mahfouz, manager of the centre which is run by housing association A2Dominion, said: “It was a fantastic event, with over 100 local people attending. “It is so important to recognise the unparalleled contribution of black history to world history and so we wanted to celebrate Black History Month with a combination of history and workshops catering for all ages alongside some powerful poetry and moving music.”
