About the event
This documentary film and its accompanying teachers’ guide present the history of Black settlers in Alberta and incorporate the voices of young Black Albertans who share their experiences.
It tells the story of five generations of Black Albertans and their experiences of discrimination living on the Canadian prairies. Descendants of a large wave of African American immigrants who moved to Alberta and Saskatchewan in the early 20th Century to escape racism and persecution in the United States candidly share their family histories and discuss how their racial identities have shaped their experiences of living in Alberta.

Please join us at our premiere of the award-winning movie “Black Lives in Alberta: Over a Century of Racial Injustice Continues”
