Black History Month
Black history is an important part of our heritage in Alberta. During Black History Month, all Albertans are encouraged to learn more about how Black Canadians continue to shape Canada’s history and to participate in local community events.
Celebrating Black Creators
Alberta: Growing up Black
This mini documentary, produced out of the need to create relevant educational material that includes the historical presence of the black community in the development of Alberta since its beginnings in 1905, aims to stimulate dialogue addressing the roots and present-day existence of anti-black racism here in Alberta.
I Can't Breathe
Congratulations to Red Deer filmmaker Love Nwigwe, whose film was selected by STORYHIVE for this program.
Every February, people across Canada participate in Black History Month events and festivities that honour the legacy of Black Canadians and their communities.
Our mission is to act as a bridge in connecting and mobilizing central Albertan communities in racial and social justice through engagement, advocacy, and community building, both individually and systemically.
The Black on the Prairies project is a collection of articles, personal essays, images and more, exploring the past, present and future of Black life in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
