Black History month: Do you know your Canadians?

Patrons and staff discover a piece of our Canadian History

Every now and then, you will encounter (especially near Canada Day) a quiz that tests your knowledge of what you know about your country.  These quizzes give a person one of two impressions: that you know a lot about your "home and native land", or you really need to 'step up your game' on Canadian history.

This month, the Manotick Branch has a bonus round celebrating Black History Month.  The challenge for our clients here is matching the name with the photo provided.  Do you know who they are?  Do you need a clue? One of them adorns our new ten-dollar bill.
