BLACK HISTORY MONTH PHOTO EXHIBIT AT CORNWALL PUBLIC LIBRARY – February 13, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – February is Black History Month in Canada and it is an opportunity for Canadians to understand the role the Black community has played in our history and to recognize the significant contributions Blacks have made to the life of Canada in education, medicine, art, culture, public service, economic development, politics, and human rights.

Now until mid-day Monday, February 14 the library is hosting a bilingual picture exhibit that tells the stories of successive migrations to Canada by enslaved African Americans.

Bringing the exhibit to the library was a collaborative effort with “le Centre culturel de Cornwall”.  The Centre is located in the former St. Croix elementary school on Anthony street in Cornwall and will host the exhibit beginning Tuesday of next week
