This Black History Month, the Workers of Colour Caucus (WOCC) highlights the achievements and the legacy of anti-racist, human rights movements and activists.

Workers of Colour Caucus will be calling attention to black and anti-racist movements in its black history project, Black Facts. This page will be updated daily throughout Black History Month.

Please also join us in celebrating black women innovators—Paulette Senior, Trey Anthony, Viola Desmond, Delivina Bernhard, and d’bi.young anitafrika—portrayed in this year’s Legacy poster created by artist Robert Small.
