Black History Month
Details:

Black History month honours the contributions of people of African descent in Canadian society and is an opportunity to share the history and culture of Black Canadians. Historically, it honours the courage and resolve of trailblazers such as Viola Desmond, who in 1946 changed the conversation about why segregation is contrary to one’s human rights by electing to sit in the “whites only” section of a theater in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Each activist revered during Black History month sent a very public message of what equality meant to them in the face of oppression, racism, and discrimination of that time. Efforts such as these led to a 1995 proclamation by Parliament marking February as Black History Month in Canada. This month, let us stand in solidarity to honour the strength and perseverance of Black Canadians and collectively work towards racial justice.
