THE BLAC AWARDS

THE BLAC
AWARDS

Achieving Greatness

BLAC is an awards ceremony for the grassroots African-Caribbean community living in the United Kingdom where it will be honouring the past, celebrating the present and embracing the future by paying tribute to success stories across many walks of life.  We’ll be emphasising inspirational achievements and role models in many fields and showcasing the beautiful array of talented individuals.  This event  will be held on Wednesday 9 December 2020 at the ILEC Conference Centre 47 Lillie Road, Earls Court, SW6 1UD 2020, from 6pm – 1am.  

This event is long overdue and needs to be highlighted. There’s not a lot of credit going where credit is due when it comes to young people. Recognising something a young person has done goes a long way and to be able to shine a beacon of light on them is great.

A cultural community recognition, a night where the younger and older generations can all network and gain value from one another.

The BLAC Awards will be a significant boost to the African, Caribbean and black British communities, whose progressive, entrepreneurial and educational achievements have been missed and overshadowed by the violence, which is underpinned by street gangs, that have disproportionately affected these communities in London.

DIVISION OF WORK

Society runs on our dependency for one another for successful outcomes. We look for dependency outside of our family members.

SENSE OF TOGETHERNESS

The meaning of community is often misunderstood, understated or overlooked. The word ‘Community’ generally refers to sections.

FEELING OF ASSOCIATION

Our security within a community comes from a strong natural human instinct of wanting to associate with one another.
