Alberta Liberal Leader David Swann celebrates Black History Month

Calgary, AB (February 1, 2017): David Swann released the following statement on the beginning of Black History Month:

“I am pleased that Black History Month will finally be officially recognized by the Government of Alberta. The black community in Alberta has contributed greatly to our province’s history, and Black History Month is an opportunity for us to educate ourselves on their stories.

“With xenophobia and discrimination on the rise in the world today, Black History Month reminds us that our diversity is our strength. The achievements of black Canadians throughout Alberta’s and Canada’s history, often in the face of pervasive racism, show that the colour of one’s skin is never – and should never – be a barrier to greatness.”
