Celebrating Black History at Britannia
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 www.britanniacentre.org/black-history-month
If you have a suggestion to add to our community resource list please email and let us know!
This month there will be a Black History Month celebration event on Friday, February 24 in partnership with VLACC!
