City of Toronto celebrates Black History Month
  
The City of Toronto, in partnership with the Canadian Human Rights Commission,
the Bank of Montreal and the Law Society of Upper Canada, will officially
celebrate Black History Month by launching the Human Rights Through Art
exhibition on Monday, February 12. A reception will be held at 6 p.m. in the
rotunda of Metro Hall, at 55 John Street.

February is officially recognized throughout Canada as Black History Month. In
Toronto this celebration recognizes the contributions African Canadians have
made, and continue to make, to the life of Toronto in areas such as education,
medicine, art, culture, public service, economic development politics and human
rights.

On February 16, the City will launch a Web page to mark Black History Month,
which also features an on-line version of the exhibition Human Rights Through
Art. It can be found at http://www.city.toronto.on.ca/ blackhistory.

In partnership with Culturefest and Tropicana Community Services, the City of
Toronto's Access and Equity Unit will also co-host a forum to discuss the
contributions of the Black community to the Toronto Police Service, Toronto
Fire Services and the Canadian Forces. The forum will take place at Malvern
Community Centre, 30 Sewells Road, on Sunday, February 25 from 2 to 4 p.m.
