Today is the last day of Black History Month. It originated in America in 1926 as “Negro History Week,” and was first recognized in Canada in 1950. It is now recognized across North America and the United Kingdom.
Matthew Berard from our Southern Alberta Division spoke with Commissionaires Contract Supervisor Greg Amey about Black History Month. Greg is a dedicated father, pastor, commissionaire, and American who has made Canada his new home. He shared his insight on the importance of recognizing and celebrating Black heritage, in both countries.
