For Black History Month, The Centre for Advancing the Interests of Black People is holding an artistic contest to ask tenants to submit artistic pieces about Black History Month.
What does Black History Month mean to you?
In celebration of Black History Month, The Centre for Advancing the Interests of Black People (“The Centre”) is holding a contest asking TCHC tenants across our communities to share their perspectives about what Black History Month means to them.
This contest is part of The Centre’s “Black history and me” artistic project and aims to honour the legacies of past and present trailblazers, reflecting on their contributions and impact within the Black community.
