Did you know that when WW1 began, there were churches in the British West Indies with racially segregated seating; or that the vast majority of their populations were non-Whites – Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people - excluded to the edges of society; kept in extreme poverty without the right to vote? And did you know by the end of WW1 a new Black pride and civil rights struggle had ignited the British Caribbean?

As part of their work on the Our Manchester Voluntary and Community Sector grant programme, The Programme Team, want to develop their approaches, relationships and work with Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME) voluntary and community organisations and leaders across the city.

Manchester artist, Meha Hindocha, is currently completing an artist's residency at the Old Bank Residency which will take the form of a large scale mural produced for NOMA, celebrating Manchester's hidden stories. Like Manchester, this mural will be constantly moving, shifting, and changing as hoardings are applied around the exciting development of the NOMA neighbourhood. It is hoped that the mural will offer a fresh perspective of the history and development of our city.
I started writing something shortly after the new Prime Minister has made his first speech on the steps of Downing Street. Another premiership set to be dominated by Brexit. It has paralysed national policy and politics for the last 3 years and it looks like this is set to continue for the foreseeable future...but the phrase which is ringing in my ears from the speech is “the doubters, the doomsters, the gloomsters”. I suspect many politicians would put charities and campaigners in those categories.
NHS Blood and Transplant has launched a funding call to enable organisations to apply for funding to positively engage local communities in organ donation, address myths and barriers, and increase support for organ donation among black, Asian, mixed race and minority ethnic communities.
