THE BLAC AWARDS
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.
I feel The BLAC Awards are a brilliant and insightful way to highlight achievements of those who may not usually be identified or noticed.
So awesome to see a new fresh upcoming award that highlights individuals in the African and Caribbean communities! It is so necessary! I am looking forward to them!
The BLAC Awards, I must first say, I love what you are doing & stand for!
I love your movement.
