Halton Black History Awareness Society

The Halton Black History Awareness Society develops programs to erode racism, prejudice and stereotyping towards marginalized communities while increasing knowledge of Canadian history and its cultural landscape. This is achieved through events including our Annual Halton Freedom Celebration Festival, Annual Emancipation Art Exhibition, an HBHAS Gospel presentation, and HBHAS Presents - speaking engagements to the public, elementary/secondary/ university & college students, businesses, youth mentoring, community groups, and historical/genealogical and heritage organizations.

The Halton Freedom Celebration Festival brings together musical acts, children's and youth activities, cultural art, food, crafts; heritage, historical, and genealogical vendors promoting inclusivity and community integration.

Multi-cultural ambience will be infused with Cultural Crafts, Art in the Park, Cultural designer fashions and accessories, Exquisite food, and Exceptional ambience complimenting the best in R&B, Reggae, Soul, Funk, African, Cuban, Jazz Fusion, Ska, Soca and Pop.

The Emancipation Art Exhibition is an opportunity for the public to meet a number of exquisite Canadian Black Artists and experience their artistry of love, bondage, beauty, family, and expression in illustrating their "Freedom" - their Emancipation.

The Speaker's Forums are Canadian Black historical, anti-racism, genealogical, current affairs discussions, presentations and panels promoted by the HBHAS and/or in collaboration with cultural and inclusivity/diversity organizations

This Festival, in concert with all HBHAS events, engagements, activities and presentations, welcomes all cultures to participate in the joys of multiculturalism, inclusivity, and cultural diversity.
