On January 28, 2017, Black History Ottawa hosted the annual Black History Month launch. This year’s theme for 2017 is:  “Our Canadian Story: The Road to 150 and Beyond”, to honour the history of  Black pioneers , to acknowledge the resilience of Black newcomers, and to highlight the future of Black youth.

Surrounded by allies and supporters, Justice for Abdirahman was honored to accept the Black History Month Ottawa Community Builder Award. Justice for Abdirahman would like to thank Black History Ottawa for highlighting the value of working towards obtaining justice for Abdirahman Abdi’s family and the greater social justice issues facing our collective communities. We are deeply gracious. The battle for justice continues and we will work harder and longer to obtain it.
