The Multicultural Association of Fredericton (MCAF) is pleased to collaborate with the New Brunswick African Association (NBAA) to present Black History Month celebrations honouring the achievements and contributions of Canadians of African descent as leaders in the struggle for inclusion and equality. The public is encouraged to take part in the series of Black History Month activities organized throughout the month of February to create a collective voice to eliminate racial discrimination, embrace diversity and build an inclusive community. Among the diverse activities organized in celebration of Black history month, a series of short and feature length documentary films, that can only scratch the surface of such a rich and multi-layered culture, will be held on Thursday evenings at the Harriet Irving Library (HIL), UNBF. The film series, co-sponsored by UNB Libraries, begins February 2nd and ends February 23rd. Showings are free to the public and start at 7:00pm nightly in Room 100 (Milham room) of the HIL.
