Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month… we invite you to honour our local legacy

DR. SAINT-FIRMIN MONESTIME

Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.

The 2020 theme for Black History Month is: “Canadians of African Descent: Going forward, guided by the past.” This was inspired by the theme of the United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024).

The Mattawa Museum is honoured to feature a permanent exhibit supported by the Monestime family.
