Our Mel is a grassroots volunteer community dedicated to exploring cultural identity, Black history and what it means to be a person of colour in Britain today.

Events for Black History Month could be happening near you; 31 days poetry/open mic, art exhibitions, dance, music, seminars, drama, speakers, workshops and film. Workshops include opportunities for people of all ages, races and religious backgrounds to gather together in a safe environment to discuss and learn about everyday issues surrounding people of colour in today’s society.

A New Man: trans memoir

Sat 28 Oct 2017, 6pm, New Roots, Glossop Road

Charlie Kiss discusses his recently released memoir, ‘A New Man’. It is a story of broken families, isolation and a total collapse of identity. Anti-nuclear protest at Greenham Common results in imprisonment. Severe mania and crisis of identity results in hospitalisation, homelessness, loss of friends and dignity.

Throughout all these challenges lies the conflict of self-identity within, as Charlie knows deep down that he is male, but this is repressed. As a lesbian feminist Charlie believes that he should fight against stereotypes of what it is to be a woman but the repressed feelings keep resurfacing until finally Charlie transitions and is far happier and calmer but there are surprises at how the world treats him differently.

“Death of Justice Rally”

Tue 31 Oct 2017, meet 5.30pm, Devonshire Green, Division St. S1 4GX

Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign have called this march to Sheffield Law Court, to mark the first anniversary of Amber Rudd’s shocking decision not to hold any form of inquiry into the infamous “Battle of Orgreave”. 95 miners were beaten up, and falsely imprisoned 33 years ago, apparently by orders of the Conservative government. Amber Rudd’s decision was made on Halloween.

Join this Halloween night rally against the evil of the past and present. Fancy dress optional but encouraged. Full details including downloadable stuff (available to order, £10 per pack of materials) at the link below.
