Join Ottawa Public Library (OPL) in honouring the legacy and impactful contributions of the Black community locally and worldwide. The Library is hosting events and has a diverse collection of resources, which aims to explore the historical significance and contemporary influence of the Black community. OPL invites all to discover Black history in person or online. All events are free of charge, embracing inclusivity and accessibility for everyone.
On February 15 from 7 - 8:30 pm, join OPL for a French event at 515 rue Côté with author Blaise Ndala in conversation with Marie-Célie Agnant and let yourself be transported into a literary world while discussing his novels.
In addition to OPL hybrid events, various library branches will be screening thought-provoking Black films, offering a cinematic journey through history and culture. Showtime details are available on OPL’s program and events listing. For fresh reading suggestions, check out the booklists for adults, teens and kids alike linked on OPL’s on BiblioOttawaLibrary.ca.
