Black History Month Event at City Hall

Feb 1, 2024 – Black History Month Launch Event at City Hall

The Black community has contributed significantly to the history and cultural diversity of the City of Hamilton. In 2023, several Black-led organizations in Hamilton worked together to support the City of Hamilton in launching its first official Black History Month Celebration under the theme We Are Hamilton - Black History Remembered. Through this initiative, images and biographies of 16 Black Hamiltonians were profiled, with one more individual added to the list of honourees in 2024. 

On February 1, 2024, a Black History Month Launch Event took place at City Hall.

Naomi Ogunjobi , St. Thomas More CSS student spoke about “Strengthening Legacies: Building Black Futures”.
