October is Black History Month in the UK, when figures in the Black community—past and present—are given the recognition they deserve. To kick it off, Hult professor, Bill Carney, is hosting a Virtual Skills Lab looking at the Black experience in the US from Jim Crow to Black Lives Matter. The injustices in the US have had huge ramifications across the globe and are vital to understanding the current international climate.
