BLACK HISTORY MONTH
TRUE ROLE MODELS
There are those who put effort into having a world of equality. They put in effort with the hopes of bringing about a better society where equal opportunity is a reality. Productions Pulchérie Mboussi/AfriCa Fest would like to pay tribute to the people who are making a difference within Black communities. Their involvement has an undeniable, positive impact that carries over to everyone.
We are inviting you to propose a candidate or candidates whose will be highlighted all long the Month of February 2018. The selected laureates will be featured in the annual Black History Month Magazine which will be distributed all over Victoria, Nanaimo, and Vancouver as a symbolic tradition. Through their initiatives, they act as models for us all and particularly for young people inside of black communities. ‘’It’s important to shine light on those who often work in the shadows, and whose achievements demonstrate the presence and contributions that diversity provides,” noted Michael P. Farkas, President of the Round Table on Black History Month.
Laureates as well as the Magazine will be presented on January 31 in Victoria and on February 3rd in Vancouver. The Closing GALA: The Night of Elegance will be held the last Saturday of the Month: Saturday February 24, 2018. During this presentation, there will also be featured local and international speakers and performers.
