Black History Month has been officially recognized in Canada since 1995, when the Honourable Jean Augustine, the first Black female Parliamentarian in Canada, introduced a motion in the House of Commons.
Throughout this month, CTN has been sharing stories and content that highlights Canadian Black history, celebrates diversity and focuses on the challenges and triumphs of Black families in the disability community on our social media channels (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter).
Celebrations like Black History Month offer us an opportunity to engage in ongoing conversations around the importance of equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility that stretch well beyond a specific month or day in the year. We look forward to continue improving our efforts to amplify the voices that need to be heard and create space for the stories that need to be told so we can reflect the communities we so proudly serve. This is the beauty of diversity.
If you have a link or content you think we should share online, please email Heather Oliver-Hamilton firstname.lastname@example.org.
