Saskatchewan Proclaims February as African-Canadian/Black History Month

Released on February 2, 2021

Saskatchewan has proclaimed February as African-Canadian/Black History Month, which recognizes and honours the legacy of people of African descent across the nation.  

Black History Month is an opportunity for all to learn more about the many accomplishments and contributions from persons of African heritage to Saskatchewan and the rest of Canada.  

“Saskatchewan is proud to be home to such a vibrant and active African-Canadian community,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said.  “Black History Month is the perfect opportunity to learn and celebrate the many distinct cultures of Canadians of African heritage represented in our province.”

This year is also the 16th Anniversary of the Saskatchewan African Canadian Heritage Museum (SACHM).  The SACHM has made significant progress in establishing a presence in Saskatchewan, with one of the major highlights being the installation and dedication of the Honouring Tree Sculpture in Wascana Park.

“We celebrate this important milestone because it is an opportunity for all of us to learn about the wide range of African-Canadian experiences, including dealing with racism and the vital role this community has played throughout our shared history for over 100 years in Saskatchewan,” SACHM Chair Sharon-Ann Brown said.

The SACHM is offering several virtual events over the course of February, developed in partnership with the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Theatre Saskatchewan and several other Saskatchewan cultural organizations.  For a list of upcoming events, visit the SACHM’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SACHMSaskatchewan.
