End of Black History Month

February ends today but Black History and culture continues through the months if we take time to celebrate. This month we have given presentations, performances and workshops at many schools and continue to receive invitations. We were very happy to be a part of Oakville's celebration of Black history and also happy to contribute to the Waterloo celebration where my girls performed. In Guelph, a Museum exhibit of Black History with emphasis on inventors will be showcased at the university on March the 29th. Also this month Wordsworth Books of Waterloo hosted Larry Hill and Afua Cooper, an event I missed because I was giving presentations elsewhere. I have since bought a signed copy of Lawrence Hill's book, "The Book of Negroes which I hope to review later. March 6th is the 50th 'Golden' Anniversary of Ghana's Independence and all roads lead to Ghana!
Happy continuation of black history...bring in the sunshine!
