Each year during Black History Month, the Division of Human Resources & Equity joins the University community in recognizing and celebrating the contributions of the Black community in education, politics, science, engineering, media and the arts, amongst other fields.
We honor the contributions of current and historic members of the Black community who have paved the way through their leadership, innovation and courage to fight for our fundamental freedoms and rights. These contributions are woven within the fabric of Canadian culture.
Historically and in the present day, the Black community has fought for the fundamental freedoms and rights of all persons through their leadership, innovation and courage; the results of this fight are woven within the fabric of Canadian culture. These contributions inspire us every day to question how we can do better, and how we can continue to shape our community into a space where all members feel welcome to study, work, and engage in a free exchange of ideas.
