Institutions share resources, restore historic buildings, hand out meal kits for BHM

Many postsecondary institutions have announced special events, new initiatives, partnerships, and projects in honour of Black History Month or African Heritage Month. St Francis Xavier University partnered with the Town of Antigonish to celebrate the launch of African Heritage Month in Nova Scotia, which follows the theme of Through our Eyes: The Voices of African Nova Scotians. Faculty from Western University and Huron University will be taking part in the restoration of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, which is reportedly one of the last surviving chapels built by formerly enslaved people who came to Ontario. The Lethbridge College Student Association will be handing out meal kits for Jollof Rice – an iconic West African dish. The University of Windsor and Athabasca University are among those that have compiled Black History Month reading lists.
