Black Heroes Past, Present & Future – A Celebration of Black History Month
February 27 @ 1:00 pm
The Museum of Dufferin (MoD) and community leader Alethia O’Hara-Stephenson (Dufferin County Canadian Black Association) are holding a live YouTube event to celebrate our Black Heroes Past, Present & Future for Black History Month.
Our panelists are Grammy award-winning artist and author Dan Hill who will read from his book I Am My Father’s Son, A Memoir of Love and Forgiveness; the Godfather of Canadian Hip-Hop and author Maestro Fresh Wes; Shelburne Deputy Mayor Steve Anderson; and community leader and Soulyve Incorporated’s Phil Dewar. We also have Danielle Bryan, Ashanti Brooks and Tyra Harris from the Black Chapter Youth group from Centre Dufferin District High School who will speak on the future.
We will discuss the Dufferin community coming together to celebrate our Black heroes of the past with a look at the stories of Black history featured in the Museum of Dufferin’s Main Exhibit, Through the Looking Glass. This is a wonderful opportunity for the MoD and the DCCBA to have this important discussion of how our Black community has evolved over the years.
