The Black Achievers Awards 2022

Deadline for Nominations – Wednesday 31st August

Who Are We?

The aim of the Black Achievers Awards is to recognise and promote the achievements of our BME community. Over the years, black men and black women have experienced years of negative press and the Black Achievers’ Award aim to change this by showing communities across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire that there are real positive black role models out there.

Councillor Merlita Bryan who is a local Councillor, former the Sheriff of Nottingham and former Lord Mayor of Nottingham first started these awards in 2011. Her vision of what the awards has since developed and expanded in ways that she could never imagine. She continues to recognise and award those within the black community as a way of strengthening the relationships, bonds and attitudes of black individuals within society.

Due to the pandemic over the last two years, Councillor Bryan wants to come back this year stronger than ever with it being the 11th year of the awards being hosted. 

It is a black tie event is held in Nottingham in October to celebrate Black History month.
