Why should Canadian Black History be important to Canadians?

Linton Garner is the Executive Director of the Regional Association of West Quebecers which serves the English-speaking community in the Outaouais.

He is also the co-creator, with Dr. Dorothy Williams, of a new curriculum they want to get out in Quebec schools called The ABC’s of Canadian Black History, to foster accessible resources and a bibliographic record of the historical presence of Blacks in Canada.

Linton will share several stories of Canadian Black change-makers whose names we may not recognize, but need to know.

  • Service Leader – Sheila Laursen
  • Musicians – Kerry-Anne Kutz & Michael Cartile
  • Zoom host – Christopher Thomson
  • On-line Greeters – Nancy Schmidt (J&S) & Kathy Matyas
