Torkin Manes honours Black History Month

Throughout the month of February, Torkin Manes honours Black History Month. 

February highlights our year-round opportunity to learn more about the Canadian Black community’s rich history, the inspiring journeys of some of its members, many of whom achieved greatness in the face of adversity and discrimination, as well as the Black community’s ongoing contributions to the enrichment of our country.

The theme for this year’s Black History Month is “Black Excellence: A Heritage to Celebrate; a Future to Build”, which highlights the “rich past and present contributions and accomplishments of Black people in Canada, while aspiring to embrace new opportunities for the future.”

As part of our learning and enlightenment, we are shining a spotlight on a web series titled, “28 Moments of Black Canadian History”, created and directed by Torkin Manes’ Articling Student Anne Moreau.

To learn more about the innumerable contributions that members of the Black community have made to the enrichment of our country, please read statements on the websites of the City of Toronto, the Government of Ontario and Government of Canada.
