30th Edition of Montreal Black History Month: Black Conversations

Black Conversations
at the centre of

Black History Month

Free Panels, Discussions & Workshops Every Sunday Throughout February!

Following the enormous success of the first edition of Black ConversationsThe Round Table on Black History Month is bringing the experience online for free for all to join. Presented by TD Ready Commitment and produced by the team from Never Was Average in collaboration with PHI, Sundays are meant for Black Conversations during the full month of February with panels, conversations and workshops meant to highlight well-being, family bonding, emotional healing and community empowerment.

“As the world enters one of its most conscious Black History Months, we’re also set to earmark some of the most unique times in history. Fuelled by social injustices, but also fuelled by social activism, Afro-descendant people have dealt with varied levels of trauma, and it’s time to heal, it’s time for self-care,” said Carla Beauvais, Strategic Planning Coordinator for The Round Table on Black History Month.

“Every event in this series is planned with the mindset of offering a unique and enriching experience, guaranteed to leave all our participants in a better place and looking forward to the following Sunday. We’ve made sure to have support from highly-qualified people like Lalah Delia to guide participants on their paths to wellness,” added Carla Beauvais.

Black Conversations: The Wellness Reunion is an experience-based series inspired by the Black Panthers when they popularized the concept of self-care in the 1970s. Crafted towards Afro-descendant communities living in Quebec, these free virtual gatherings are meant to uplift your mind, body and soul.
