Black History Month

EcoAmbassadors present:

Racism, Equity and Anti-racism in the education system

Black History Month in Canada is a unique opportunity to pay tribute to individuals of African descent, who through their dynamism and accomplishments have reflected the spirit of our time. Now is also the time to shed light on the current social and economic conditions of Black people in Canada.
