African Heritage Month 2015

The study of African History and Heritage at Malcolm Munroe Memorial Junior High is a cross-curricular approach that is not limited to February.  This approach allows students to learn about the history and heritage of African Canadian people through novels, informational texts, poetry, art, music, and educational films. It also allows students to represent what they've learned in a variety of ways including various forms of writing as well as other ways of representing (art, music, etc).  

A sample of some of the learning opportunities at Malcolm Munroe include:

  • Library displays, which includes posters and books, with a focus on notable people in Cape Breton’s African Canadian community.
  • viewing and discussing A Long Road to Justice- The Viola Desmond Story in many social studies classes.
  • learning about the contributions of African Canadian soldiers during WWI and WWII.
  • researching prominent African Canadians to learn about their lives and contributions.
  • researching African Canadian history in Atlantic Canada with a focus on Africville.
  • discussing racism and ways of fighting it.
  • completing author studies of prominent African Canadian and/or African American authors.
  • studying the Underground Railroad through information text, multimedia and historical fiction.
  • creating murals to represent cultural diversity.
