Celebrating Black History Month in Northern Ontario 

February is Black History Month, and each year we honour and celebrate notable achievements, both past and present, within the African American community. 

There are a number of events taking place where you can learn about important historical figures, current influential people and significant events related to Black history. 


On February 23, 2019, The Afro-Heritage Association of Sudbury is holding a Black History Month celebration, “One Sudbury – One Community”. Tickets for students are only $25 and all the proceeds will go towards supporting related associations in the community.
