Celebrate Black History Month


Every February, people in Canada are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of Black Canadians and their communities.

In celebration of Black History Month, Olds College has pulled together a list of virtual events and book suggestions for our campus community to check out.

At Olds College, our goal is to foster an environment of mutual respect and trust among all learners. Together, with our students and staff, we will continue to learn how we can do better and make meaningful changes to ensure Olds College is a safe and welcoming place for all.
