Title of Event:
FBC’s Got Talent
Covid won’t stop, can’t stop, us from showcasing our community’s incredible talents!
In partnership with our national Youth Council, FBC has decided to host a national virtual Talent Show in October 2021
While one of FBC’s main goals is to connect Black Canadians and support social, economic, and political interests of the Afro- Canadian Diaspora, it also holds the responsibility of bringing light to the incredible work, talents, and skills of the dynamic community. This means finding unique ways to encourage community connections, showcase our people, work, and talents, and provide a platform for opportunity.
The Federation of Black Canadians (FBC) is a national non-profit organization that seeks to rally Black Canadians together around national issues, opportunities, and or initiatives. The FBC supports the social, economic, and political interests of the Afro- Canadian Diaspora and works to connect Black Canadians across Canada. FBC’s value proposition stems from its ability to connect, support, and strengthen the various voices of Black Canadians across Canada.
