St. Mary Celebrates Black History Month

Posted On Saturday January 30, 2021

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

The Durham Catholic District School Board recognizes and embraces Canada's diverse culture. During the month of February, St. Mary joins with other schools and organizations across the nation to celebrate the contributions and history of Canadians whose roots are in Africa, the Caribbean and South America. Black History Month gives our schools a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of members of Black community . As a faith community, Durham Catholic District School Board embraces and promotes human dignity, inclusivity, respect, diversity and justice. Please visit DCDSB Equity and Inclusive Education for more information. 

We at Durham Catholic District School Board acknowledge that Black History is not just an event that is remembered in February or only for Black students. We celebrate Black History Month because it is Canadian History. Every Canadian, born here or elsewhere, should take pride in learning about and celebrating the past and current achievements, contributions, and cultures of Black Canadians who have contributed to the building of this nation for centuries.

Black History Month 2021 at St. Mary will include:
