February marks Black History Month (BHM) in Canada. As we embark on a month of reflection and celebration, we also acknowledge the persistent challenges and historical injustices faced by Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Colour (BIPOC).
At LDS, we advocate for diverse learners and actively strive to break down internal and external barriers impeding the complete participation of BIPOC students.
LDS highlights the importance of acknowledging the accomplishments and contributions of Black Canadians and their communities. We also acknowledge the diversity of voices, perspectives, origins and experiences within the Black community and encourage you to take this month to listen and explore those diverse voices and teachings. They have played an essential role in making Canada a culturally diverse, compassionate, and prosperous country.
We invite you to explore and participate in Black History Month with some of the following resources:
