The changing face of Black History Month

by Archives February 9, 2005

Black History Month was created to combat racism and promote awareness of the history and culture of North America’s black community. It might seem strange then, that the group most involved in organizing the month’s events at Concordia represents students from another continent altogether.

The African Students Association of Concordia (ASAC) has taken the lead role in the month-long celebration of black history and culture, organizing various events throughout February. ASAC put up displays to promote the culture of various African countries on the mezzanine of Concordia’s Hall building this past Monday, and members were on hand to answer questions about the continent’s contributions to Canada and the world.
