Black History Month

Black History Month (BHM) at McGill University is an annual celebration that was officially recognized by the University in 2017. Organized by the Social Equity and Diversity Education (SEDE) Office, BHM is a growing collaboration between various partners, bringing together McGill students, staff, faculty, alumni, and Montreal community members. 

The goal of BHM at McGill is to celebrate and centre Blackness at McGill University and more broadly in the greater communities of Montreal, Quebec, and Canada. Through diverse events and activities, BHM aims to educate and create necessary spaces for people in our communities to learn, engage, challenge, and expand our understandings of Blackness, Black history, and Black experiences.

For more information or to get involved with Black History Month at McGill and/or BHM 2018, please contact Shanice Yarde at shanice.yarde [at] or Chantelle Dallas and Chanèle Couture de-Graft at blackhistory.sede [at]

We look forward to celebrating with you!
