Recognizing Black History Month

In recognition of Black History Month, Harper Grey’s Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Committee shared resources with the firm that highlighted the importance of celebrating Black Canadians and their contributions to Canada’s history. The information they shared outlines the origins and purpose of Black History Month, how it is being celebrated locally, how we can participate and links to materials by recommendations for some Black content creators. We as a firm are committed to learning and listening.

For information on the origins of Black History Month, the experience of Black Canadians in the 21st century, and more, we invite you to visit the BC Black History Awareness Society’s website here.  Find more ideas on how to celebrate Black History Month in Vancouver here.

Life in Law, powered by Harper Grey, offers a number of excellent resources on their Dear LiL Blog including podcasts, books, and movies from Black content creators. Check it out here.
