In honour of Black History Month, the Cultural Mosaic Centre invites students, staff and faculty to celebrate the ongoing movement for rights equality.

“Black History Month is a chance for students to discuss their personal experiences and struggles related to race and class,” says CMC Coordinator Nick Beck. “This history is everyone’s history – it speaks of the human condition found in the act of standing up against injustice and racial prejudice.”

Join SAMRU from Monday, February 2nd thru Thursday, February 5th in Wyckham House for a celebration of Canadian Black history and culture! In honour of Black History Month, the Students’ Association’s Cultural Mosaic Centre invites students, staff and faculty to celebrate and recognize the achievements of Black Canadians.
