Black History Month
In 1995, MP Jean Augustine introduced a motion that was passed unanimously by the House of Commons to recognize Black History Month across Canada.
Here in Hamilton, the Black community under the leadership of the Hamilton Black History Council has engaged each February in a month-long marking of this important celebration of Black history. Each year since 1996 the Reverend John C. Holland Awards have recognized excellence in the accomplishments of Black leaders and residents.
The Black community has contributed significantly to the history and cultural diversity of the City of Hamilton. The contribution of people from Ray Lewis, Lincoln Alexander and Bernie Custis, to Evelyn Myrie, Gary Warner and Sandi Bell among many others have all made a tremendous difference over the years to our city.
