Ontario Black History Society


Message - OBHS President

Nikki Clarke, OBHS President

Black History is Canadian History. Black History is International History. The contributions and achievements of black peoples can be seen in arts and culture, inventions, architecture, policy making, sports, and the list goes on.

The mandate of the Ontario Black History Society is to ensure that we protect, preserve, and promote black heritage in Ontario. Since becoming the elected President November 9, 2015, it has been a very busy and rewarding time for me personally and the organization as a whole. Our goals moving forward are  to create more engaging programs for the youth to carry on our legacy and to provide inclusive opportunities for French and Spanish speaking Blacks.

2017, marks Canada's 150th Birthday and as we pursue our vision, we call on talented individuals to lend a helping hand, we ask for resources, and for funding so that we can continue our mission.

I encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter @obhistory to learn about our current events and programs.

Together we can make a difference.
Ensemble , nous pouvons faire une difference.
Juntos, podemos hacer una diferencia

Nikki Clarke, OBHS President
