In Canada, February is Black History or African Heritage Month. The United Church intentionally honours and celebrates Black History Month.
The Very Rev. Dr. Wilbur Howard was the first Black Moderator of The United Church of Canada, serving from 1974 to 1977. The church is grateful for the contributions of Dr. Howard, and many other African Canadians who have shaped the life and ministry of the United Church. Dominion-Chalmers United Church in Ottawa, where The Very Rev. Dr. Howard served from 1965-1970, includes a biography of him on its website.
The United Church’s website offers a page of resources and links.
