Black History Month Celebration at the Legislature

Yesterday I had the honour of joining Speaker Bob Wanner to co-host the Alberta Legislature’s first official celebration for Black History Month.

Over 420 people, including many descendants of Alberta’s original black settlers, filled the Legislature rotunda and the balconies above to be part of this historic occasion to recognize the legacy and contributions of Albertans of African and Caribbean heritage.

It was a pleasure to speak on behalf of the Premier alongside member...s of opposition parties and community advocate Junetta Jamerson, and we all enjoyed powerful performances by Erin David and Ahmed Knowmadic.

Thank you to everyone who joined us and who worked to make the evening happen. It was a night we’ll all remember as a genuinely pure moment of community and celebration.
