Annual Black History Month Gala featuring Wes Hall

Join the Afro-Heritage Association of Sudbury (AHA) as we celebrate Black History Month at our annual Gala. "History in the Making"

AHA's Annual Black History Month Gala is held to commemorate and celebrate Black History Month by showcasing the Afro-Caribbean culture to our Sudbury community. The gala is open for all to attend as part of AHA’s mission to promote unity and togetherness through cultural experience that promotes diversity and understanding. This year’s gala theme is focused on emphasizing the connection between cross cultural integration and innovative success. To achieve this goal, we will be having a special keynote given by Mr. Wes Hall. Wes is parting with his precious family time on a Saturday to fly down to Sudbury and educate community leaders to become active allies to the black community. This is a milestone event that is not just reflecting on our history but it is about "History in the Making".

 

Through this event, we hope to design an environment where local businesses can leverage opportunities to connect with members of our community, to provide them with otherwise missing opportunities. Wes will share his experience on how he was able to get his big breaks through acts of allyship and how we can provide similar opportunities to our community.
