Black History Month learning

Date published: 27th October 2023

Staff at Tuntum came together for a Lunch & Learn Session (pictured below) to celebrate Black History Month.

In the UK, Black History Month happens every October. It gives everyone the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of black heritage and culture.

Tuntum was set up over 35 years ago by community activists from the Windrush generation to provide quality housing and jobs for people primarily from the black Caribbean community in Nottingham. From these humble beginnings, the Association has significantly grown and diversified, maintaining its identity as a BME-led housing association.

Delores Vasell, our Head of Community Initiatives, gave a presentation and created an exhibition on two themes, ‘Saluting our Sisters’ which is the BHM national theme for 2023 and ‘Meet the Founders’, which is about the 7 founder’s of Tuntum (pictured below). 

The BBC came to Tuntum’s Head Office to film the presentation and exhibition for East Midlands Today news and Politics East Midlands. 

Supporting equality, diversity and inclusion for our customers and colleagues is important to us all year round, not just in Black History Month.
