History Is Rarely Black or White Speaker Series
Online, 14 January 2022, 1–2:30 (ET)
Charmaine Nelson and Shannon Prince join Jason Cyrus to investigate the ways in which cotton production in the United States forever changed the landscape of Canadian diversity. Together they tell the stories of Black people on both sides of the border by connecting the Victorian cotton industry with the Underground Railroad and settlement in Canada while addressing the related colonial legacies that still affect Black Canadian life today. Sign up.
History Is Rarely Black or White is on view through 20 March 2022.
