AHCS's Professor Charmaine Nelson was named a laureate for Black History Month 2014. The Round Table on Black History Month shines a light on talents within Black communities who have distinguished themselves by their involvement in Quebec society. These role models, who are often in the shadows, have a tremendous impact
on their environments.
The Round Table on Black History Month pays homage to people from Black communities who are devoted, passionate, and determined – and who, through the strength of their identities,
transcend barriers, accomplishing great things. For roughly 20 years, those selected as laureates have been presented in the Black History Month calendar – available free of charge at the Month's offices – a symbolic and important tradition for Michael P. Farkas, president of The Round Table on Black History Month: "These women and men are the definition of will! Our laureates are true builders. They forge the society of today, all while influencing the society of tomorrow. The discovery of these role models demonstrates that Black communities actively contribute to society via a variety of spheres. We should be proud of this contribution and continue to value it accordingly."
