Verdun commemorates Fred Christie
As February begins, the borough of Verdun and The Round Table on Black History Month non-profit organization commemorates one-time resident Fred Christie, one of the earliest people to fight discrimination in Montreal.
“February is black history month,” said current Verdun Mayor Jean-Francois Parenteau. “I am very proud to share with you the story of Fred Christie, un grand Verdunois.”
