AfroQuiz and Black History Month

AfroQuiz is one of many events in Edmonton and around Canada that takes place during the Black History Month which celebrate the rich history and accomplishments of African and Caribbean descent.

The Government of Canada continues to support AfroQuiz and many other Black History Month festivities and events around Canada that recognize and celebrate black achievement. We are honoured to once again receive support from the Department of Canadian Heritage through the Community Support, Multiculturalism, and Anti-Racism Initiatives (CSMARI) program.

Inspired by the theme of the United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024), the 2020 theme for Black History Month is: “Canadians of African Descent: Going forward, guided by the past.”
