When you were growing up, was Black History Month celebrated? If so, how?
Throughout the month of February, I have attended many schools to celebrate Black History Month. I had the pleasure of speaking at École Provencher about Black inventors and visionaries. I participated in powerful panel discussions at Dakota Collegiate and Grant Park Collegiate where other panelists and I discussed our experience as persons of colour.
Black History Month is an excellent opportunity to learn the names and stories of Black inventors, creators, thinkers, and history-makers. Thank you to all the schools that invited me. I look forward to continuing these important discussions.
