Is your co-op celebrating Black History Month?

Published February 06, 2019

Images of three Black youth with the text "Black Canadian Youth: Boundless, Rooted, and Proud"Black History Month, celebrated in February each year, is an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the achievements of Black Canadians, past and present. This year’s theme is “Black Canadian Youth: Boundless, Rooted and Proud.”

We encourage co-ops to mark Black History Month. Here are some ideas:

  • Share information on local Black History Month events with co-op members
  • Screen a documentary about important historical figures or events
  • Have a book club to discuss writing by a Black Canadian author
  • Have an event to raise money for an organization in your community that supports Black youth

Is your co-op doing something to mark Black History Month? Let us know at info@chfcanada.coop, we’d love to share your story!

Here are some Black History Month events taking place across Canada. If you know of others, please email us at info@chfcanada.coop and we’d be glad to add them to the list:
