Black History Month Collection
In honour of Black History Month, the Canadian Olympic School Program (COSP) is proud to add two new stories of inspiring Team Canada athletes to our Black History Month Collection, Olympic Champion Donovan Bailey and Beijing Olympic hopeful Dawn Richardson Wilson.
Driven by their values, commitment and quest for personal excellence, kids and youth will be inspired by some of the nation’s greatest role models and ambassadors including,
Olympic stories of triumph and disappointment can engage learners in discussions about important value issues. Through the stories and challenges of Olympic athletes, children and youth can explore and connect values to their lives, and perhaps begin to see their world in new and different ways.
Through sharing these captivating stories, the COSP aims to foster an understanding and appreciation in the next generation of Canadians of the contributions made by Black Canadians to sport and to the history of our nation.
