Black History, Black Futures bannerHeather Holmes won Monday’s true-or-false quiz on Black history.

Quiz winner separates fact from fiction

Heather Holmes of Facility Services won Monday’s true-or-false quiz on Black history to earn a copy of the 2022 Legacy Collexion poster by Robert Small (BA 1993) along with an assortment of swag from the University of Windsor Alumni Association.

Holmes’s entry was drawn from all those which correctly noted they were all true: freedom seekers crossed from Canada into Michigan before the abolition of slavery on this side of the border; Eleanor Roosevelt, Mary MacLeod Bethune, Adam Clayton Powell, and Martin Luther King, Jr. all addressed Emancipation Celebrations in Windsor; and the University of Windsor was the first in Canada to divest from apartheid-era South Africa.

There will be more chances to win: the quiz series will continue in DailyNews through the month.
