The session will explore and highlight the Black Canadian involvement in and contribution to the War of 1812 and the sociological implication of this participation for memory, Black self-perception and the continued contributions of Blacks to Canada. The panel invites multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary presentations that connect the historical with the contemporary. Among others, topics may include: the regional specificity of Black contributions to the War of 1812; Black families and the Canadian military; contemporary Black self-perceptions and the War of 1812; the social history of post-war Black experience; urban education and teaching about Black Canadian contributions; PTSD, war and Black Canadian families; museums, memory and Black heritage; and Black war memoirs.
