Examining the Relevance of Black History Month (BHM) 25 Years Later
BHM! We thank Jean Augustine, Canada's first Black woman parliamentarian.
Twenty-five years ago, Canada’s House of Commons officially recognized February as Black History Month, following a motion introduced by the Honourable Jean Augustine, the first Black Canadian woman elected to Parliament.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Augustine for a fireside chat with senior associate Keri Bedeau of BLG LLP.
Dr. Augustine served four consecutive terms in the House of Commons in various roles including Minister & Secretary of State for Multiculturalism, and Deputy Speaker.
Dr. Augustine is an educator, parliamentarian and advocate for social justice. Please click here for a full bio.
