By | Uncategorised

From December 4 to 6, 2017, the Federation of Black Canadians marked the International Decade for People of African Descent with the National Black Canadians Summit: a convergence of 800 people of African descent and stakeholders. With three days of high-energy keynotes, cultural performances, and strategic planning sessions for social change, the ground-breaking event drew from decades of Black community organizing and awareness raising to serve as a springboard to accelerate collaboration around an inclusive Black Canadian agenda, grounded in an anti-oppression perspective.
