February is Black History Month
Celebrate Black History MonthIn December of 1995, the Parliament of Canada passed a motion officially designating February as Black History Month. It affirmed the importance of Black history and heritage and provides an opportunity to raise awareness and be inspired by the pride, strength and achievements of African Canadians.  Today, this celebration has grown across the globe. It is not only celebrated by people of African descents but by people from diverse backgrounds. For more information on Black History Month events visit
