ABOUT THIS EVENT

Theme: “Collective Action, Collective Vision, Collective Change: Supporting One Another as the Black Winnipeg Collective”

The Afro Caribbean Mentorship Program (ACMP) and the University of Manitoba Black Alliance (UMBA) will host its third annual, one-day (in-person & online) Black History Month (BHM) event. The evening’s festivities will celebrate Afro-Caribbean Black Canadian communities’ by paying homage to our history and celebrating Afro-Caribbean Black (ACB) people’s great accomplishments in our present times. The evening’s social gathering will encourage audience members to dance, sing and contribute to a thought-provoking panel discussion on the Black experiences in Winnipeg, empowering our ACB community members, and supporting local Black Businesses and Initiatives.

To ensure we are making our Black History Month event a time to remember, we will focus on working in solidarity with Black businesses to remind our Winnipeg community to support Black-owned businesses and appreciate the hard work of ACB entrepreneurs. In doing so, this event will invite Black-owned to collaborate to establish a pop-up shop pre-event and intermission. This is our way to ensure our attendees recognize amazing Black-owned Winnipeg businesses while encouraging them to support these business establishments. We must be vigilant to realize that Black-owned businesses are disproportionately affected by the pandemic and anti-Black racism, which other ethnic groups do not encounter.
