Global Winnipeg looks at Black History Month events
February is Black History Month, a celebration that honours the legacy of black people and events, past and present.
Global News Winnipeg’s Community Reporter, Blair Malazdrewich got a first-hand look at some of the great events being held right here in the city with help from the organization Black History Month Winnipeg.
Blair takes a look at an exhibition at The Canadian Museum for Human Rights, focusing on a civil rights icon.
Music, dancing and drama play a big role in a local performing arts school specializing in African and Caribbean culture. Blair Malazdrewich gives us a peek.
… and finally, Blair tries his hand at making some cultural cuisine.
