Did you know the fastest growing Black population in Canada is on the Prairies?

February is Black History Month, a time to recognize and celebrate the many diverse achievements and significant contributions of the Black community across all segments of society. There are many ways to celebrate the month, from upcoming Black History Manitoba events to exploring new titles from Black Canadian writers.

On Thursday, February 8, the newly established Manitoba Chapter of The Canadian Association of Black Lawyers (CABL-MB) in partnership with the Manitoba Bar Association is hosting the First Annual Sankofa Lecture. Join our Black Legal Community for this exciting inaugural event with special guest lecturer The Honourable Michael H. Tulloch, Chief Justice of Ontario. See details for this event and additional resources below to learn more about the history, contributions and experiences of Black people on the Prairies and in Canada – within and outside of the legal profession.
