Guess who was selected as one of 2021 Black History Month calendar Laureates?

Message from our Chairperson

It is an absolute honor and privilege to have been selected as one of the 2021 Black History Month calendar laureates alongside outstanding individuals who during their journey have shown commitment, tenacity and longevity.

Black History Month (BHM) is an opportunity for Black people in Quebec to come together and celebrate their history, contributions, and successes. The BHM round table allows a platform to share various programs taking place within the month of February made up of cultural, empowerment, educational and historical activities put on by organizations and individuals concerned with promoting Black culture.

On behalf of the West Island Black Community Association, I would like to congratulate Michael Farkas and the entire Black History Round Table team (past and present) for 30 years of success.

Kemba Mitchell – WIBCA Chairperson
