Still I Rise

"You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise."

Still I Rise - Maya Angelou

As part of October's Black History Month celebrations, Salford's BAME Mental Health Champions, working with Result CIC's Hormoz Ahmadzadeh, have inspired and organised a couple of events.

The Lowry in Salford is hosting an exhibition, titled after the Maya Angelou poem, Still I Rise.

Award-winning photographer Allie Crewe's exhibition, Still I Rise, features portraits and stories celebrating black, Asian and minority ethnic culture in Salford from some of those working in the city’s public and voluntary sectors, including Hormoz.

Find out more about the stories behind the photographs via Salford's Clinical Commissioning website here.

With the support of Salford CCG and Salford City Council, the BAME Mental Health Champions have also organised a free event. Everyone is welcome.

'The Black History Month' event promises to be a lively afternoon of entertainment with drummers, dancing, poetry and food.
It is also looking at the more serious side of mental health issues for BAME people, so there will be stands and workshops from several organisations, including 42nd Street for whom Hormoz is a trustee.
