Celebrating Black History Month

Black Canadian Youth: Boundless, Rooted and Proud

Join us in marking Black History Month, and Canada's official recognition of the International Decade for People of African Descent. We welcome Fabienne Colas and Eldon Holder for a vibrant and engaging discussion about young Black Canadian's tireless efforts and impact in making Canada more prosperous and diverse.

Come hear about how Black youth thrives in the current world, raise your awareness of their challenges, and learn about the important contributions Black Canadians make in shaping Canadian heritage and identity.

To learn more about Black History Month visit the Canadian Heritage website.
