To that end, the celebration got off to an early, historic start with the staging of playwright Jason Rip's play, Flowers and Thorns, at Wolf Performance Hall Jan. 26 that told the story of six Black Canadian women who've had an impact. Black History Month kicks off tonight with the first event featuring poet Joshua Bennett at 7:00 p.m.in Albert Taylor Hall.
