Brock community group celebrates African Heritage Month

Published on January 31 2013


The Brock/Niagara African Canadian Renaissance Group and its partners at the University will again host a series of community events throughout February to celebrate this year’s African Heritage Month (AHM).

The month-long program includes art exhibits and performances, film screenings, guest lectures, a drumming workshop and cooking demonstration, just to name a few.

All of these events are free. Everyone is welcome to attend.

“We invite the community to join us as we celebrate, debate and share what is a tradition at Brock University,” says Richard Ndayizigamiye, a Brock professor of modern languages, literatures and cultures and co-chair of this year’s organizing committee.

“For 2013, the AHM organizing committee worked to develop programming with a focus on Haiti,” says co-chair Tamari Kitossa, associate professor of sociology.
