Black History Month
During the month of February, we have an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of black Canadians and reflect on their stories, their experiences,and their accomplishments. The St.Clair Catholic District School Board has pulled together a selection of resources and opportunities that honor Black History and offer learning for not only the month of February but as a stepping stone to continue learning beyond the month. The theme for 2022 focuses on February Forever: Celebrating Black History Today and Every Day.
