A few years ago at the start of a school year, using an icebreaker to introduce ourselves, I asked students in my mentorship group to share something unique about themselves. I was pleasantly surprised by one student in particular. That student shared they were the only person in the room of mixed parental heritage with one parent being white, the other Black. As we finished our introductions, I came back to the student with a modest qualification. I quoted the old adage that one cannot judge a book by its cover. That in fact, I too am a child of a Black parent.
As in previous years, TFS students participated in several events to acknowledge and celebrate Black History Month in February. Our students were encouraged to reflect upon the crucial importance of inclusion and diversity, and to celebrate the Black Canadian community.
