Meet Quebec's 2021 Black Changemakers
New CBC series highlights inspiring people making a difference
In celebration of Black History Month, CBC Quebec is recognizing current-day changemakers who are helping to shape our future. Our goal is to highlight individuals from the province's Black communities who are making positive changes, giving back and inspiring others.
Nominations are now closed but the response was overwhelming. We received more than 500 nominations. Nominees are artists, creators, health-care workers, educators, entrepreneurs, community organizers and everyone in between.
Starting Feb. 1 and then daily throughout the month, we will reveal the finalists across our platforms. In addition to the 28 profiles, we will also publish an "honourable mentions" list at the end of February.
