Black History Month

Listen Here to our latest episode of the Ulysses Neuro Podcast, where we commemorate Black History Month, currently taking place in the US and Canada. Black History Month is an annual observance to remember and recognise important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It’s celebrated in February in the US and Canada, while in Ireland and the UK, it is celebrated in October. As the father of Black History, Carter Woodson, said, “If a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated”. We encourage everyone to take the time this month to actively participate by learning about the history and culture of Black people globally, and listening to their experiences. These actions should not just be limited to one month of the year, but should be common practice all year round, helping to promote equality among people of all races. Our hosts Olaitan J. Jeremiah and Ross Oglesby are joined by Dr. Immanuel Darkwa, start-up founder and lecturer at TCD, and Gladys Otono Atsenokhai, comedian & mental health advocate.
