African Canadian Black History Month

 February is African Canadian Black History Month, which is a time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians and their communities. It is also an opportunity for all of us to learn about the wide range of African Canadian experiences.

The theme for this year's celebration is February and Forever: Celebrating Black History today and everyday.

During Black History Month, Canadians celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation it is today.

Hear some of the Black Canadian History stories:

The Saskatchewan African Canadian Heritage Museum (SACHM) has been one of the provincial leaders in promoting the importance of the historical and current contributions of Black Canadians in the province. This year, the SACHM has teamed up with Rawlco Radio and the Mackenzie Art Gallery to celebrate the launch of African Canadian Black History Month. The livestream of the event can be viewed here.

CBC Saskatchewan, in collaboration with CBC Alberta and Manitoba led a project called Black on the Prairies: Place Edition, a multiplatform collection of articles, personal essays, images, audio stories and more. It explores the present and past lives of Black people living on the prairies. It can be viewed here.
