"Black Excellence in Leadership" - BLACK HISTORY CELEBRATION 2023

February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate and recognize the contributions, culture, and achievements of Black people throughout history. This month is an important reminder of the impact these people have had on our society and the world. The roots of Black History Month can be traced back to 1926, when historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) launched the first annual “Negro History Week”. This week was intended to bring attention to the contributions of African Americans to the history of the United States. This week was eventually expanded to a month-long recognition in 1976, with President Gerald Ford acknowledging the importance of Black History Month.

Black History Month is an important reminder of the resilience and power of Black people throughout history and in our present day. It is an opportunity to recognize the progress we have made and how far we still have to go.

In celebration of Black History Month, the BPL is hosting an event on February 7th, 2023 to recognize the contributions of Black people and celebrating their achievements throughout history. The event will feature a variety of activities, including a Keynote Speech by the Dean of Peter A.Allard School of Law, Ngai Pindell and a Formal Dinner/Fireside Chat with 2 other panelist; The Fist Black Female Judge, BC Honourable Justice Thérèse Alexander and The First Black Bencher LSA, AB Kene Ilochonwu, K.C .

This is a great opportunity to celebrate and honor the history and culture. RSVP Here
