February is Black History Month!

In this month of February 2022, the Women's Centre of Montreal wishes to recognize the importance of the contribution of black communities, and particularly that of women, to the wealth of Montreal.

As a reminder, November 23rd 2006, the National Assembly adopted a law project to make February Black History Month to underline the black communities’ contribution to Quebec society. This law was made official February 1st 2007.

When they adopted this law making February Black History Month, the Quebec Government wants to, not only add its voice to the North American movement underlining black citizens many contributions, but also want to officially recognize the importance of this annual event for all of Quebec society.
