Black History Month School Tour

Black Theatre Workshop began touring to Montreal schools in 1983 as a way to provide educators with appropriate content that they could share with their students during Black History Month. These plays for young audiences have shared stories about the Black Diaspora, historical figures and civil rights heroes as well as recounting the experiences of contemporary Black characters. For over thirty years, the tour has travelled to well over a dozen schools performing to thousands of students every season. It has become a staple of Black History Month that the Black community and educational institutions, English- and French-language alike, look forward to every year. It is an important part of Montreal’s community and contribution to theatre for young people that we hope to continue for many years to come, hopefully creating a better future for all through the magical world of theatre.
