The African Caribbean Canadian Association of Northern Ontario (ACCANO) in partnership with Sault Community Information and Career Centre, Local Immigration Partnership, and Great Lakes Honda would like to extend our warm invitation to you to join us in this year’s Annual Black History Month Celebration and Lunch.
ACCANO was established in 2011 as a not for profit, non-political, and non-denominational association that seeks to promote and grow awareness of our cultural heritage, while promoting unity within the community. Black History Month is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black Canadians as well as share our history and culture.
The luncheon will be held on Sunday, February 24th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Grand Gardens North , on 1324 Great Northern Rd . The event will feature colourful and multicultural menu, live music, dance, art exhibits, fashion show, door prizes, and a cash bar among other exciting activities.
The theme for this year’s celebration is Black Migrations and Diversity which will be the focus of our keynote speaker Dr. Carl Everton James. This year’s luncheon will also feature the celebration of local Black Excellence.
