New this year is BHM merchandise available at The Core (the NorQuest College bookstore) starting February 1, 2024.
Merchandise being sold includes postcards made by students at the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Centre's printmaking program ($2.50), tote bags ($15), and mugs ($20).
Proceeds from sales will go towards a SHINE bursary for Afro-Black-Caribbean students.
The artwork below is featured on each of these items and was created by Edmonton artist Diana Ohiozebau.
Students in two of NorQuest's Business Communications classes created infographics as part of a Community Service Learning project during the month of February. Participants' goal was to inform and educate people about Black History Month in general, as well as advertise specific events.
