Black History Month Resources

Black History Month

Every February Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month. It is a time when we recognize the struggles and celebrate the achievements of Black people throughout history. It is a time to really appreciate the diversity we are so fortunate to have in our country.

Homeschooling allows us the privilege and opportunity to incorporate a variety of subjects into our children’s education to any depth we choose. This February, and throughout the year, we hope these resources help you to educate your young ones about Black History.
