February is black history month and more than 600 activities will take place in Montreal for the occasion. The subject will also be discussed in several schools, in particular thanks to a brand new Educational guide on Black History in Canada launched last week by the Historica-Dominion Institute.

The guide is inspired by the historical novel Aminata, by writer Lawrence Hill. This book tells the story of a young African woman kidnapped and then brought to the United States to become a slave. She fled to New York then to Nova Scotia before crossing the Atlantic again to participate in the creation of the British colony Freetown, in Sierra Leone.

“The Black History in Canada Educational Guide highlights the stories, personalities and important contributions of the Black community in Canada. This is a great resource for students and for all Canadians, ”Lawrence Hill said in a statement.

The Historica-Dominion Institute has also created a portal presenting portraits of blacks who have marked history, historical moments as well as arts and culture.

In addition, teachers who want to explore the subject further with their students will find many resources in the thematic guide of Education hub on the subject.
