Celebrating Black History Month
Thursday, February 9 - 10:30 to 11:30 am
YMCA Windsor Learning Centre - 500 Victoria Ave.

Guest Speaker: Constable Jamie Adjetey-Nelson, Diversity Officer, Windsor Police

Black History Month is a time to celebrate Black history and culture, and to honour the ancestors and leaders of Black communities, their accomplishments, and their continued fight for liberation. This event will acknowledge, reflect, and educate newcomers on the history of enslavement, discrimination, and criminalization of people of African dissent. The event will also remind us that systematic racism is still present, and highlight that Black history should be recognized all year. 


Both events are supported by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
