ANNOUNCEMENTS: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2020 – Week #2 Cycle Day G
FEBRUARY – AFRICAN HERITAGE MONTH
February is the month we celebrate African Heritage Month - The 2020 African Heritage Month theme, The Ties that Bind: Faith, Family and Community, recognizes the essential traits that sustain the strength, resiliency and togetherness of the African Nova Scotian community.
These ties are the bedrock for the African Nova Scotian community which helped them support and stay connected to each other.
The theme aligns with the “Recognition” pillar of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent (DPAD). We must recognize the important contributions of people of African descent, while also acknowledging the long-standing prejudices and unfair treatment endured for generations.
