FBC attended the 41st anniversary of the BBPA Harry Jerome Awards. It is inspiring to see the phenomenal work that Black Canadian trailblazers & industry leaders are doing in their fields. The Harry Jerome Awards is Canada’s signature event celebrating Black Excellence and is an opportunity to showcase the best of our community.
