Black History Month
BHM February is Black History Month! This time is an opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributions of Black live performance artists and enrich our knowledge of Black History.

Fun fact – Black History Month dates back to 1926 in the United States. At that time, Carter G. Woodson founded a week that focused on celebrating the accomplishments of Black Americans, which eventually became Black Heritage Month in 1976. And in 1995, the Canadian government officially recognized February as Black History Month.

Celebrate Black History Month this year by checking out the resources made available by Nia Centre for the Arts, a charitable organization that supports, showcases and promotes an appreciation of arts from across the Afro-Diaspora, here.
