Welcome to Eastglen’s Black History Highlight!
February is Black History Month. While we celebrate Black History year round, February is a time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate, and prosperous nation it is today.
The commemoration of Black History Month dates back to 1926, when Harvard-educated African American historian Carter G. Woodson proposed setting aside a time devoted to honor the accomplishments of African Americans and to heighten the awareness of Black history in the United States.
Celebrations of Black History began in Canada shortly thereafter. During the 1970s, the week became known as Black History Week. It was expanded to Black History Month in 1976.
In December 1995, the House of Commons officially recognized February as Black History Month in Canada following a motion introduced by the first Black Canadian woman elected to Parliament, the Honorable Jean Augustine. The motion was carried unanimously.
Here at Eastglen, we are going to have a daily “Black History Highlight” -- which you are listening to right now! There are also a variety of displays you should check out in the library anytime this month! We are going to culminate with our next event hosted by the Eastglen Culture Club -- a Cultural Talent Show in March!

We look forward to celebrating this month with you, and Black History throughout the year.
