(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) The African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) Network of the Waterloo Region recently received an invitation from the City of Kitchener’s Mayor Berry Vrbanovic to attend a Black History Month dinner with a select few community leaders chosen from the Mayor’s Task Force on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. We are deeply disappointed by this last-minute invitation, which was received after a Task Force member explicitly requested that the Mayor and staff commit to organizing a meaningful event with the ACB community.

Last Saturday night, Iqaluit kicked off Black History Month celebrations with an opening ceremony at the Frobisher Inn. “The objective is to express the reality that we all are one connected, united human family,” said Stephanie Bernard, president of the Nunavut Black History Society.

To commemorate Black History Month, the combination photography and illustration art exhibit 143 (I Love You) Sponsored by TD launches inside Toronto's Union Station on Thursday February 6th at 7:00 pm and runs until March 28th.
