Black history month is February, but festivities started early in a London, ON this past weekend as the group that has organized Black History Month for the past 10 years held a special and exclusive anniversary celebration at a London Museum this past weekend.
The London community has built much momentum over the past decade and raised the profile of the black community in the surrounding area as well as the rest of the province. For the past 10 years, the celebration of diversity has been supported through cultural showcases and historical re-enactments during the month of February. Banner printing and poster printing have helped advertise local cultural events and celebrations to all residents throughout London.
Publishers also produce publications about local histories and events in the communities that black citizens have been instrumental in creating and supporting.
Print companies have been instrumental in helping support the yearly cultural celebrations and helped educate the community about a rich history and some of Canada’s distinguished citizens that are racial minorities.
The Black history co-coordinating committee, sang, danced and help opening and closing ceremonies this past weekend. The anniversary celebration this past weekend included many speakers and attendees, most notably Rosemary Sadilier, president of the Ontario Black History Society.
A great deal of printed paraphernalia is expected to be help support Black History Month 2012 and its three core events, including cultural showcases, opening and closing ceremonies and events at the London Regional Children’s Museum.
