Why Black History Month is Still Important in Canada

Black history month is coming up and we want to hear from you!

Our February 3rd newspaper will be themed for black history month. We’re hoping for this paper to be start of a month-wide discussion in the paper, in Peterborough, and on campus about the importance and relevance of BHM in the Canadian context of multiculturalism, immigration, and diversity.

Anyone can submit regardless of writing ability or experience in newspaper. They don’t have to be news. We’re aiming for personal stories, opinions, relevant issues, debates, be about certain people in their life or about important public figures, etc. Hey, it can even be photos! The deadline to submit is January 29. Submissions should be sent to editors@trentarthur.ca.

We’d really like to see as many people be involved as possible so don’t be shy!
