LONDON BLACK HISTORY COORDINATING COMMITTEE
The goal of the London Black History Coordinating Committee is to engage the community in celebrating Black History Month through organizing, supporting, and collaborating with community organizations on programs and activities that are available in the region to educate, inform and uplift.
Who we are
The LBHCC was formed in 2002, out of a desire to increase awareness of Black History Month activities in the London area. The Committee is committed to providing programs and services that will increase public understanding of the diversity and history of London’s Black community. LBHCC hosts three or four programs each year. The work of the Committee is conducted by a dedicated team of volunteers and welcomes new members.
The Committee also assists other groups and organizations with the promotion of their activities. These include but are not limited to: the Congress of Black Women-London Chapter, the Black Student Association (BSA) at Western University, the Historical Society of Buxton and the Woodstock Museum.
The LBHCC welcomes people of all ethno-racial backgrounds and lived experiences to join the committee. All members are welcome to sit on one or more of our subcommittees: Opening Ceremonies, Youth Symposium, Children’s Program, Film Series and Closing Gala.
