Every February, people across Canada participate in Black History month. This is a time for celebration and a clear recognition of the legacy of black people in Canada. This month and each month throughout the year, we can all reflect on this history and commit to maintaining an awareness and to foster meaningful change. It is also a time in which we must reflect on the fact that discrimination still exists. We must all do our part to stand up against racism and hatred in its overt and subtle forms.
Now is the time to shine a light and educate ourselves, our friends and family and move towards an enlightened future. The following links we hope, will highlight the many accomplishments of black Canadians and celebrate their contributions. Together we can create a world of inclusion and diversity and respect for all peoples.
