On Thursday Febuary 25th, 2016 the Boys and Girls Club of East Scarborough celebrated our annual Black History Event. The theme of this event was THEN and NOW, “SANKOFA”. This is the idea that before you can move forward you must claim your past. Our goal of the event was that everyone involved (children, youth, and staff) had the chance to learn something new and interesting about Black Canadian History. We explored Black Canadian history by taking a look at past Canadian trail blazers and first figure heads that have paved the way for the figure heads we value today. Below are some photos taken during this event and a video created showcasing how ESBGC celebrates Black History Month. Also, remember that just because the month of February has ended, acknowledging black history should not.
