Black History Month 2023

On February 28th, 2023, Rexdale Women's Centre celebrated Black History Month with service partners and residents by hosting an interactive community event. There were cultural dances and activities, live music and a fashion show. Participants learned about Black History and build cross-cultural understanding.

Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.

Black History Month was initiated in Canada by the Ontario Black History Society and introduced to Parliament in December 1995 by Jean Augustine, the first Black woman elected as a member of Parliament. Black History Month was officially observed across Canada for the first time in February 1996.
