Black History Month was officially recognized by the House of Commons in 1995 to acknowledge the accomplishments of people of African descent who are too often absent from Canadian history books.  The history of Chatham-Kent features prominently in the Canadian tapestry. The Elgin Settlement has been acclaimed as the most successful planned black settlement for fugitives from slavery.
