Help Members Succeed

BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2022

The overarching Canadian theme for 2022's black history month is February and Forever: Celebrating Black History today and every day. The Canadian theme falls in line with the BGBN's vision and the BGBN’s theme for Black History Month (BHM) 2022:

THE POWER OF ADVOCACY

 

Join us as we celebrate Black History Month

BGBN’s theme for Black History Month (BHM) 2022 focuses on advocacy and representation as a continuous process. As we celebrate BHM, let us remember it is a call to action and reflection of what was and what we want the future of black lives to mean. So we welcome and acknowledge allies to join BGBN as it hosts its annual Black History Month series every Friday throughout the month of February starting at 5:30 pm.
