Celebrating Black History Month

access_time 2 weeks ago

As Black History Month begins for 2021, Leyton Orient will be looking back upon our proud history – and proudly celebrating our diverse community.

This national celebration aims to promote and celebrate Black contributions to British society, and to foster an understanding of Black history in general.

Across the month of October, we will be celebrating significant black players from our history with website and programme features, as well as interviews with current members of or squad.

In addition to this, the Leyton Orient Trust will be running initiatives across Waltham Forest, including two Say No To Racism Classroom workshops to Year 5 classes at George Mitchell School on 14th October.
