Message - 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 newly 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.
2016, marks the 20th Anniversary of Black History Month in Canada 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.
Together we can make a difference.
Ensemble , nous pouvons faire une difference.
Juntos, podemos hacer una diferencia.
Nikki Clarke, OBHS President.
