Black History Month Presentation (posted March/2017)

This year black history month was small, simple, yet powerful. There were posters all over the school of the accomplishments of great Black Canadians, and interesting facts, we also had definitions of the different words of exclusion, and hate. It is important that we know the things that we say, and how we treat people have meaning, and impact, if we are to change the world in which we live. We also had a bulletin board displaying all of this information. The announcements highlighted the struggle of our Black Canadians, and how this history still exists today in a modern form.

Our speaker Dr. Olufunke Aladejebi eloquently highlighted these issues that exist today, and how much of it comes from the ignorance of our own CANADIAN history; as Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world."

We are looking for next year's Black History month to be bigger, and even more educational. All students, and staff looking to revolutionize our Black History month, please see Mrs. Carey, Ms. John, or Ms Chen. We thank the Art Department for joining us next year, and having the talent of Newman artistically depict some of our great Black Canadians in the main foyer.
