Black Canadian Awards Press Release
The Diversity Advancement Network will be hosting the Black Canadian Awards ceremony – a Black History Month event scheduled for March 1st 2014 at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Theater in Toronto. This event showcases how far Black Canadians have come in this country. It also celebrates the success stories and the achievement of trail-blazers and leaders within our community. Categories for the awards are: Business and Professional Excellence, Community Development, Entertainment and Role Models.
The ceremony will crown, through a nomination and voting process, various artists and genres of Black Canadian music and art such as Best R&B Artist, Best Jazz Artist and Best Actor/Actress, just to mention a few. It will also feature a talent scholarship based competition to crown the Black Canadian Queen for the year 2014. We feel that more can be done to further showcase achievers and talents from the black community all over Canada. Knowledge is power, yet there are too many people who have little or no knowledge of the richness and depth of our history, culture and achievements in Canada both past and present. Therefore, we are committed to effect a change in this area through this awards ceremony.
Our website is an online platform with a mandate to showcase success stories and trailblazers on a daily basis in order to inspire and positively advance the Black community nationwide. Our nomination list is filled with newsworthy achievers like Jean Augustine, Lindsay Blackett, Senator Anne Cools, Donovan Bailey and others who are pioneers in their fields. For the first time in history, we are presenting one hundred role models with their full stories and much more. Many dignitaries and VIPs are expected at this formal red carpet event on March 1st from 5pm.
