Who has inspired you? We will continue to celebrate Black History throughout the rest of the term; the OICL Task Force invites you to share or film a short video about someone who is important to you. Please send your submission to OICL and Ms. White with a short introduction to the video and/or the person featured in it, and we’ll include it in a future Bulletin post!
