Black History Month is a time for a us to celebrate the unique and compelling stories of Black Canadians past and present.  The Rhythm & Blues series of Black History Month events throughout February provides opportunities for citizens to engage with Black history, art, culture, and social justice, organized by local members of the Black community.  The name Rhythm & Blues comes from the saying “They want our rhythm but not our blues” and this series offers a look at the historical and contemporary struggles and triumphs of Black communities in Waterloo Region.
