Join 2019 Ottawa Black History Month 

Be a part of Black History Month February 2019 in Ottawa, Canada

Are you a member or leader of a national, regional, local social, musical, ethnic or cultural organization? Are you an artist, painter, member of a theater company, advocacy group, religious organisation, school teacher or student leader?  Do you work in a federal, provincial or municipal government department, educational institution, hospital, community health centre or other health or social service agency, NGO, or non-profit agency? Do you want an opportunity to showcase your organization in a high profile event? If so, we invite you to be a part of the February 2019 Black History Month celebrations.  Black History Month celebrates the contribution of people of African descent to the Canadian mosaic, and Black History Ottawa is looking for individuals and groups to bring variety to the program in February 2019.                                                                                                                          

As we continue marking the U.N. Decade of People of African Descent (2015-2024), we encourage you to organize and present inspiring and educational events that showcase Black culture and traditions, especially anything that speaks to the Black experience in Canada. Such events include, but are not limited to, forums, lectures, theatrical productions, poetry readings, art exhibits, job fairs, film screenings, fashion shows etc. Our theme for 2019 is: “Our Canadian Story: Nothing about us, without us!”, and we hope you will use it to guide your planning.
