Black Joy: Resistance, Resilience, and What it Means to Black Canadian Youth Experiencing Homelessness
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness” - Desmond Tutu, South African Human Rights Activist
“The past of slavery is experienced daily as if it were happening again….” - Toni Morrison, Beloved
In commemorating Black History Month, we can reflect on the various contributions that Black Canadians have made, and continue to offer, that strengthen this nation. This year, the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (COH) marks the month by highlighting Black Joy, Resistance, and Resilience.
