Month Kick-Off

Register Here: [ Eventbrite ]

The COVID-19 pandemic has strained the heritage sector, including the OBHS. Additionally, the Black community has been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. With these unprecedented events happening simultaneously with the global reckoning of anti-Black racism sparked by the Black Lives Matter movement, it’s even more important to know HISTORY!

This history continues, from the past to the present, even amidst a pandemic. History anchors us, especially during times like this.

Join us as we feature community recognition profiles, Black history, entertainment, museum tours and so much more.

History…Who We Are!

Special recognition

In an unprecedented year, we appreciate the continued support for this event from our sponsors and the following virtual supporters.

#BlackedOutHistory

In Canada, history is only ever taught one way.

To prove this, we blacked out all of the non-Black History from a 255-page history textbook.

Only 13 pages remained. To demand change, use #BlackedOutHistory.

Please help us share #BlackedOutHistory
