Black Business Awards 2017 – Celebrating Professionals and Business Owners

Black Business Awards – 2017
Celebrating Professionals and Business Owners

The Black Business Awards, An initiative of the Diversity Advancement Network, held in November 2017 was a special business edition of the Black Canadian Awards. It had a unique focus on the economic contributions of Black Canadians, as we celebrate Canada at 150. Business owners, industry experts, professionals and entrepreneurial success stories were showcased providing a unique opportunity to learn and network with the best minds in our community.

As past a recipient of the Best Photographer award in 2015 it was especially nice to be a part of the award showcase in 2017.  Here are some of the images my team captured on stage and at the red carpet photo booth.

Salute to The Honourable Jean Augustine

On Sunday September 10th we celebrated  Jean Augustine’s 80th birthday. It included representation and tributes from all three levels government, dignitaries and Hollywood celebrities. It was incredible!  She is incredible. Of her many accomplishments being the first African Canadian woman to be elected to the Canadian House of Commons, the first to serve in the federal Cabinet or her numerous honorary doctorates aren’t her greatest accomplishments.  Jean Augustine’s story is much deeper than this. Here’s a deeper look into a pillar in the community by Marcus Medford in the profiles section on byblacks.com.
