Now booking for Black History Month and 2018!

Every February we learn about Black History but too often we focus on the same things.

It’s important to know about historic and inspirational heroes such as Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks, but we also need to dig deeper and learn more about inspirational leaders from Canada.

Our Black History presentation specializes in Black Canadian History.  I talk about Viola Desmond who stood up for her rights by sitting down at a movie theatre in Nova Scotia.  In 2018, she will be on the ten-dollar bill.

I talk about freedom fighter Josiah Henson – a slave that travelled the Underground Railroad for freedom in Canada, became a land owner, and helped other free and empower other blacks.  The presentation is interactive and I get the students rapping along to a negro spiritual.  I play a music video about Black Canadian achievements.  Finally, I call upon volunteers to play a game of “name that tune” to highlight black music contributions.
