Resources for Black History Month
February is Black History Month. This is an important time for teachers to focus on the contributions of Afro-Canadians and raise awareness of the historical injustices they have faced. Visit the BCTF Antiracism Action Group’s Black History Month web page for information and resources.
You will also find many resources and videos on the government of Canada’s Black History Month website to help students build the skills and knowledge to help develop spaces that are free of racism and discrimination.
