Curb to celebrate Black History Month
An anti-racism group has pledged to offer its services to those looking to explore Black Bermudian history.
The offer, from Citizens Uprooting Racism in Bermuda, came after it recognised February as Black History Month for the United States and Canada.
A spokeswoman said: “Members of Curb are deeply committed to anti-racism, and believe that proper recognition and reverence of Black Bermudians when recounting Bermuda’s history is the only authentic and appropriate way to honestly understand and articulate Bermuda’s story.”
The spokeswoman said that Curb would share facts about Black Bermudian history over social media throughout Black History Month.
She also noted the important role that Black Bermudians played in shaping Bermuda throughout its history, including the design and construction of early houses and in the farming and maritime trades.
The spokeswoman stressed that it was important to recognise Black history year-round, adding: “Our executive director, advisory council, members and strategic plan are all geared to anti-racism and creating a Bermuda where race favours no one”.
