Welcome to Black History Month!
The month of February presents all of us with an opportunity to pause and reflect on the culture, accomplishments, and contributions of Black Canadians throughout our nation’s history. Over the next four weeks, the Media Experts DEI Committee will be highlighting some of the Black Canadians that have impacted history and who continue to blaze trails and punch through the ceilings of the current landscape. Be sure to check this space weekly, as we will also be sharing our film, book, TV show, and podcast recommendations, as well as highlighting Black Owned businesses in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal and suggesting charitable organizations that you can support which support the Black community. Our goal is to inform and inspire you by amplifying these amazing stories, events, businesses and people.
While Black History Month is only one month long, we encourage you to carry some of these learnings and resources with you throughout the year and continue on a path of research and reflection.
