The Canadian Caribbean Association of Halton’s 2021 Black History Month Kickoff will be held Jan. 31, 2021 from 1:30 to 2:30.
All activities will be held virtually due to the pandemic.
We are excited to have the Honourable Jean Augustine be our keynote speaker this year. She is the 2021 recipient of Maclean’s Lifetime Achievement Award. She served four consecutive terms from 1993 – 2006 in the Parliament of Canada. She is also known for securing unanimous legislative support to pass a historic motion designating February as Black History Month in Canada.

CCAH partners with community organizations like the Town of Oakville, Sheridan College, and Halton Regional Police Service to deliver a highly engaging kickoff event involving the performing and visual arts, initiating a month of cultural and educational activities in celebration of Black History throughout February.
