UWindsor raises Pan-African Flag on campus to celebrate Black History Month


The University of Windsor has recognized the start of Black History Month by raising the Pan-African Flag on campus for the first time. The flag includes red, black, and green stripes: The red represents the blood shared by those with Black African ancestry and bloodshed in Black liberation, the black represents Black people, and the green represents Africa’s natural wealth and hope for the future. The flag was raised by UWindsor and by the Black History Black Futures working group. “I’m really proud today to see the gathering and support, but also to see us raising this flag for the very first time in our history and hopefully it won’t be the last,” said UWindsor VP of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Clinton Beckford.
