Dear Readers,

Welcome back to the Black & Asian Heritage Mix’ Newsletter. I suspect you already have many other newsletters to read for Black History Month. This October 2020 issue therefore invites you to explore and read a small selection of resources. Sometimes, less is more.

If any of you wishes to sponsor this newsletter or make a donation, please drop me an e-mail, thank you.

Keep well and stay safe,


Thushari Perera
