February 23 – DPCDSB Black History Month Conference
Each February, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board organizes a Black History Conference as a forum for students of all cultures to learn, celebrate and embrace the past, present and future contributions of the diverse Black community in Canada. This year's theme is "It's Everyone's History; Walking Forward Together in Hope", inspired by the Catholic Education Week theme for 2017 "Walking Forward Together". The conference seeks to call all people, especially our students, to be united in a mission of compassion and love for one another. Through this theme, our hope is that all of our students will have an opportunity to gather in Christ's presence in an atmosphere of trust and equality,  and to share and learn from the lived experiences of Black Canadians.  The conference is designed to commemorate the values of racial, social and economic justice and harmony encompassed by the mission of Christ and envisioned by our Holy Father Pope Francis. Historically, the Black History Conference has attracted over 400 students from all twenty-six of our secondary schools. This year's event will engage students with a panel discussion about Black identity in 2017, workshops on anti-black racism, self-empowerment and a variety of other experiences.  This conference serves to inform and empower all participants. Each workshop will explore a specific Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectation and will assist students to understand and explore how they will fulfill and foster these expectations in their personal lives. By learning about and celebrating the contributions of African-Canadians, we hope to inspire students and staff to continue to develop and form their diverse gifts and talents to share with the global community. Time: 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Location: University of Toronto Mississauga Campus.
