Each February, Canadians across the country participate in Black History Month events and activities, which honour the achievements of Black Canadians.
“During the month of February and throughout the year, we have an opportunity to celebrate the lives of Black Canadians, reflect on their stories and share their experiences, which have shaped Canada’s history,” says Scott Johnson, Director of Education.
Local Black history museums, such as the Josiah Henson Museum of African-Canadian History, the Buxton National Historic Site & Museum, the Black Mecca Museum in Chatham and the Chatham-Kent and Lambton public libraries are tremendous sources for students and staff as they explore this rich and important history.
“We celebrate these distinguished black men and women who have contributed so much to Canada’s multi-cultural heritage,” says Mr. Johnson.
