Black History Month - Sharing Stories

Yesterday, I attended a book launch, "New Shoots, Old Roots", by the African & Caribbean Women's Association at the Glasgow Women's Library. This lively event supported a sharing of stories by women from African and Caribbean backgrounds living in Scotland.

The stories told in the book should be shared widely to promote better understanding of Scotland's history. To promote health and wellbeing, there is a need to ensure this history of an older generation of women is shared with new migrants and a wide range of educational institutions. 

The African & Caribbean Women's Association supports awareness raising about Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia as well as promoting social welfare, recreation and leisure to improve the lives of its members and their children.
