October is Black History Month, a time to celebrate and recognise the work of black people past and present, learn the history of black people in Britain and further afield and more than ever advocate for #BlackLivesMatter. We caught up with a few Rose employees who spoke about black artists that inspire them.
During Black History Month there's a lot to take advanatge of and take forward with you. Here are some articles and content which may be of interest to you:
