Black History Month

Art exhibitions and artistic performances, discussions and storytelling, conversation and cultural narratives. Black History Month celebrates the achievements and contributions of Black Canadians, past and present.

In February each year, you can participate in a variety of workshops, performances and activities designed to engage, inspire and educate you about the ways Black Canadians have influenced our country’s culture and legacy. All are welcome; registration may be required.

Black History Month 2021 was held virtually as an engaging series of online events that created a space to reflect on the realities Black Canadians continue to face regarding racism and discrimination.

Additional Human Library stories

Listen to White Palms: A Tale of Identity and Belonging by Rochelle Ignacio and A Lost Boy by James Odera, two stories sharing poignant experiences about growing up Black in Canada.




No events listed? No problem.

Department- and program-specific events and activities often take place in the Fall and Winter terms, but campus-wide events take place all year round.
