The Historica Foundation of Canada is pleased to announce the launch of the Black History Canada portal, available at www.histori.ca/blackhistory.
This free, bilingual and fully searchable online gateway provides researchers and educators with a thematically organized and annotated selection of authoritative resources about Canada’s Black history that have been vetted for historical accuracy and relevance. The portal was compiled by editors from The Canadian Encyclopedia in consultation with Rosemary Sadlier, President of the Ontario Black History Society.
The portal guides users from slavery and early settlement to equity and human rights. It addresses the issues of identity and assimilation and uncovers some of the “missing pages” of Canada’s Black history – those important but often forgotten contributions of groups such as the Black Loyalists and the Maroons. The achievements of Black artists, athletes and politicians are also celebrated. Each theme features an introductory essay written by Rosemary Sadlier, captivating images, and annotated links to the best online resources available.
