In recognition of African Canadians, Black History Month celebrates the amazing discoveries and outstanding accomplishments from the past and their continued impact on the world today. In the shared responsibility to enhance community well-being and belonging, the recovering, remembering, and reconnecting of knowledge of the past and present will help shape a more inclusive future. To help educators incorporate Black History Month in the classroom, this month’s OISE Lobby display features teaching resources on the understanding of Black heritage and Black diaspora from the OISE Library Collection. Unique items include multicultural puppets, an activity kit, an activities book, a braille book, a text book, and award winning children’s literature including Martin’s Big Words, Let it shine, Voice of Freedom, and When Marian sang.
For more titles on Black History Month, please visit the OISE Lobby Display on the ground floor of the OISE building. Interested in borrowing a title? Please visit the OISE Library Service Desk.
