OBHS Public Service Announcements:
“Black History Bytes”
With a project grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage, Multiculturalism Branch, the Ontario Black History Society has produced several “bytes” of Black History. These bytes, created in conjunction with Themehouse Inc., cover a range of important figures in Black Canadian History. Since these bytes are Public Service announcements, to encourage people to learn more about the long-term nature of the achievements and contributions of African Canadians, they will be broadcast on television stations as PSA times are available. Watch for the OBHS Black History Bytes!
