Black History Month

African drummers

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.

Join us virtually for Black History Month 2021, a series of online events creating a space to reflect on the realities Black Canadians continue to face regarding racism and discrimination.
