Who Are We?
The aim of the Black Achievers Awards is to recognise and promote the achievements of our BME community. Black Men and Women have experienced many years of negative press and we aim to change this by showing the local community that there are real positive black role models out there.
This is the fifth year of the awards and year on year we have had to find a new home due to the over whelming demand of people wanting to attend the event. This year we hope to see an increase in numbers again.
