Join us in February as we celebrate Black History Month – honouring the legacy, contributions and lived experiences of Canadians of African descent who have helped define Canada.
This year's theme for Black History Month is "Black Excellence: A Heritage to Celebrate; a Future to Build." As part of our Change Education Series at CapU, we're focusing our events on African Canadian music and the arts.
From the soulful melodies and artistry of the past to the dynamic expressions of the present, musicians and artisans from this diaspora have made contributions that are more than notes on a score or strokes on a canvas. They are powerful expressions of resilience, resistance and joy that have shaped Canada's history and culture.
Throughout February, we invite you to immerse yourself in a variety of captivating film events, thought-provoking discussions, and engaging activities that highlight the transformative power of artists, thinkers and trailblazers of the African diaspora.
Let's focus on the strengths, resilience, influences and experiences of Canadians of African descent and make this 2024 Black History Month a joyous celebration of culture, creativity and community.
