Black History Month aims to celebrate and centre Blackness throughout the history, the present, and the future of McGill and beyond. Organized by the Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic), the Black Students’ Network of McGill (BSN), and the McGill African Students' Society (MASS), the Faculty of Education encourages students, faculty, and staff to participate in some of the many free virtual activities so that the members of our community can learn something new, create dialogues, and celebrate Black history together!
