Black History Month 2011

Its that time of the year again, Black History Month. This is the time of the year where I am over extended with various community engagements, in addition to the usual workload.

I was at the OBHS Brunch, where I caught up with old friends and met new ones. The Honourable Reverend Don Meredith of the Senate in Canada as well as The Honourable Magarett R. Best, of the Ontario Cabinet were present.
