Tracking Black Canada

Join us online for a virtual performance that combines video, music, Slam Poetry, Hip Hop, stand up comedy to focus on the often forgotten histories of early Black communities across our country.  Tracking Black Canada is an annual performance that delves into the histories of some of Canada’s forgotten Black communities.  This year’s focus is on three lost communities, in Alberta, Toronto, and PEI.  The presentation will highlight the contributions made by prominent residents in those communities, and how their impact is still felt today, and illuminate the conditions that led to the systemic demise of those communities and their residents.   Register for reminders!
