Happy Black History Month,
The Canadian edition will focus on Canadians of African descend this year. I will focus on Canadians of South Sudanese origin. Their contributions, success stories and so on. May this year's Black History month usher in new beginnings and opportunities to know oneself through a proper perspective. We are moving on from ''the white gaze'' as Toni Morrison would put. This month is an annual reminder of our continued greatness and inner strength. Join me on the journey of discovering and revisiting the stories of Canadians of African background.
