Although we are in Black History Month, I wanted to remind everyone that focusing on Black History should not be just one month but all year long. We need to continue to raise awareness of the historic acts of people of colour to begin to break down the embedded misconceptions of the history of our country.
Educating yourself continues to be key.
The Ontario Black History Society is dedicated to the study, preservation and promotion of Black History and heritage.
In a powerful YouTube video they demonstrate how many pages in a textbook were non-Black. They blacked out all of the non-Black History from a 255-page history textbook. Only 13 pages remained. Black History is Canadian History.
