A Black People’s History of Canada (BPHC) is a three-year project initiated by the Department of Canadian Heritage and Dalhousie University in 2021. Its purpose is to conduct new research into our nation’s rich African Canadian heritage. Partnering with African Canadian groups and government agencies responsible for education, BPHC will help create new elementary and secondary school curricula in English and for teaching Black history in every Canadian province and territory.
Black history is not just for black people. Black history is Canadian history.
We must open the doors and we must see to it they remain open, so that others can pass through.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
