Celebrating Black History at Britannia

Check out our list of resources compiled by community, and an event focusing on Black history in our neighbourhood on Friday, February 24.

The Britannia Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression Committee sent out a community call in January to put together a list of readings, films, resources, and other materials for folks to use to learn about Black history and culture. Our web site now has a page to easily share these suggested resources and hopefully there is  something for everybody to enjoy! Visit the page here


If you have a suggestion to add to our community resource list please email and let us know!
