23 Black Canadians Making Us Proud Right Now

We are all aware of Black Canadian titans such as Jean Augustine, Lincoln Alexander and Alvin Curling.

They are the trailblazers who built the foundation for future generations.  Today in Canada, there are many Black people making strides in politics, business, law and technology.  And it's important that we recognize Black Canadians outside of sports and entertainment, because our contribution to society goes way beyond that.

The fight against racism and discrimination can be extremely frustrating.  But when we take the time to learn more about Black Canadians who are excelling, we are able to develop a greater sense of hope and motivation.

Help us tell stories that matter

One more thing! Our mission at ByBlacks is to provide positive and uplifting stories that reflect our Black Canadian community. Unlike other media platforms, we have always rejected the pay for play model.

Our people need these kinds of stories more than ever right now. That’s why we’ve chosen an approach that allows us to keep our content open, accessible and free from paywalls.
We’re not into building walls anyway.

Support from readers like you gives our writers the time, space and freedom to find and create content that matters. Every contribution you make, big or small, goes directly into funding our journalism. Support ByBlacks.com for as little as $10 a month, and it only takes a minute. We thank you!
