Black History Month

February is Black History Month in Canada and the United States. This yearly month-long observance serves as a reminder to take note of where systemic racism continues to exist, and to give visibility to the people and organizations creating change.

Black History Month also provides us with the opportunity to celebrate the achievements and influences of Black people in various communities.
