Peel schools recognize Black History Month in February

Peel schools recognize Black History Month in February

Black History Month is a time to celebrate the many contributions of Black Canadians and Black communities throughout the world who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous country we know today.​

In December 1995, the House of Commons officially recognized February as Black History Month, following a motion introduced by the first black Canadian woman elected to Parliament, the Honourable Jean Augustine.

​​Throughout the month of February, schools across the Peel District School Board will recognize and celebrate Black History Month. Peel students and staff will participate in a number of activities to learn and deepen their understanding of the rich culture, heritage and contributions of Black Canadians and Black communities throughout the world. ​
