Flag raising ceremoniously ushers in Black History – Black Futures month

The raising of the Pan-African flag over campus Thursday marked the start of Black History – Black Futures month celebrations.

A crowd of students, faculty, and staff attended to hear remarks by representatives of the Black community.

“As we prepare to celebrate and honour Black History Month — past, present, and future — let us acknowledge the greatness of peoples of African descent: not only in Canada but globally, not only in February, but all year round,” said Marium Tolson-Murtty, director of anti-racism organizational change.

A calendar of activities planned on and off campus is available on the Black History – Black Futures website.
