Exploring Ottawa’s Black History - Past, Present and Future
During Black History Month, Canadians celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians and their communities who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada a culturally diverse, compassionate, and prosperous country. Many prominent histories of Black Canadians are shared nationally, however, Beechwood is home to many important Black Canadians who have impacted our city.
Join us as we share the stories of Ottawa’s Black Community and those buried within our cemetery grounds followed by Councillor Rawlson King sharing his experience at City Hall.
I have been invited to be the featured speaker, providing attendees with an inside look at my journey to City Hall, my first term, major events I have navigated and my re-election.
Join us on Feb. 23 at 6:30 pm at Beechwood National Memorial Centre.
