Black History

Cover of Kayak Black History issue (January 2022)

Sign up below to receive your FREE class sets of our very popular Kayak issue devoted to Black history. Originally presented in the winter of 2018 in digital-only format, we are pleased to now be able to offer this expanded version in print! Please note: Due to overwhelming demand, print copies are no longer available. You may still register for the digital version and educational resources.

This edition of Kayak, featuring guest co-editor Natasha Henry, shares some amazing stories and examples of the ways Black Canadians built and shaped this country. Not only will you get the same great stories as the original, we’ve added three new articles featuring people who have helped preserve and promote Black history, Black women’s organizations with long histories, and we will introduce you to Canadians with Afro-Indigenous heritage.

The United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent (2015 to 2024) encourages us to “promote a greater knowledge of and respect for the diverse heritage, culture and contribution of people of African descent to the development of societies” and this issue of Kayak helps to do just that.

PLUS you’ll have access to free lesson plans and resources.

Kayak’s Black History issue is aimed at grades 2–7.
