2020 Black History Month Cultural Activities and Dinner

February 8 @ 6:30 pm - 11:30 pm

$40.00

February is Black history month, the significant of this event goes beyond heritage celebration; it is a month for celebrating inclusion and diversity.

During the two world wars and other wars, Canadians of African descent volunteered to serve, defend and protect Canada, some of them paid the greatest sacrifices to keep the democracy you and I are enjoying today in this country and elsewhere. At the end of these wars, they were denied the heroism recognition bestowed to their anglophone and francophone counterparts, those that were lucky to return home alive were excluded from the victory parades organized to appreciate and recognize their service to our country.

AFACS is marking the 2020 Black History Month with activities on Saturday February 8, 2020 at the Rosaria Hall, Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax. This event will honor and showcase the activities of African Canadians me]n and women that served during the wars. The activities include historical presentation, cultural performances and full course dinner.

Highlights for the night include percussion performance by Master Drummer Amadou Kienou and the Djeli Sira group and Conquerors for Christ of North Preston
