Event celebrates Black History Month

Among its celebrations for Black History Month in February, the Guelph Black Heritage Society will be hosting an afternoon of live entertainment on Feb. 22 at the former BME church on Essex Street.
The “Music, Love & Family” event begins at 4 p.m. and features the Starlight Steel Band, spoken word poetry by David James Hudson, Truth and Fannon, a book reading by Natasha Henry, storytelling by Adwoa Badoe and music by Malachi Greenidge.
The afternoon will also include children’s activities and a marketplace featuring books, food and products from the Shea Butter Man Shoppe.
The event is hosted by “Big John” Leacock and Kevin Sutton.
The society will also hold a “Youth & Elders Roundtable” discussion, in partnership with the Munford Centre and the University of Guelph’s Office of Intercultural Affairs, on Feb. 26 at 5:30 p.m. at the church.
Youth and Elders who want to be part of the conversation are asked to contact Marva Wisdom at 519-835-4004 or
