February
Island wide

Black History Month is an opportunity for Prince Edward Island to celebrate black Islanders from past to present.  

Events and educational activities will be held throughout February in libraries, schools, museums and establishments.

A few upcoming events for Black History Month include: Privilege activity for teens at Startup Zone on February 16 at 2 pm; Bean mosaic at Confederation Centre Public Library on February 16 at 2 pm; and Storytime at Confederation Centre Public Library on February 21 at 11 am. There will also be book displays in many public libraries across PEI including Montague, Charlottetown, Cornwall, Stratford, Souris, Summerside, Kensington, and O’Leary. ­This year the provincial government is partnering with the Black Cultural Society to host some of these activities, which will be listed on the society’s Facebook group.

“A key direction from our Culture Action Plan is to support diversity activities that focus on education and heritage,” Education, Early Learning and Culture Minister Jordan Brown said. “The Black Cultural Society has demonstrated excellent leadership in educating and engaging Islanders, not only during Black History Month, but throughout the year since forming in 2016.”

The society will collaborate with the Confederation Centre Public Library on activities and host events at locations such as the Startup Zone, Upstreet Craft Brewing, and City Cinema. Details and times of some of these events are still to be confirmed; check the Facebook group or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

“PEI has a rich history of black Islanders and we wish to honour that as well as recognize the new generations of black Islanders that now live in the province,” said Kendi Tarichia, a member of the Black Cultural Society. “PEI has diverse communities, and celebrating Black History Month is one more way to showcase that.”
