It’s now February which means it’s Black History Month in Canada and the US. This period brings a time to learn, a time to change, a time to work towards an equal world.
Now that could mean having uncomfortable conversations with people in your life, it could be a time to learn more about the history, the real history that is, and it should also be when we celebrate trailblazers of the past, along with notable names from today.
