Black History Month, was created to celebrate the contributions and achievements black Canadians have made to our nation. 

Every year the Government of Canada dedicates a theme in order to honour specific individuals. The theme for 2018 is Black Canadian Women: Stories of Strength, Courage and Vision. The women named broke barriers, excelled at their craft and paved the way for future generations to succeed.

In order to honour this theme, we have curated a list of four women who have made positive contributions to Canadian society. Share the videos below with your students to help keep the legacies of these incredible women alive.
