Halton Hills Lecture Series: Tracing Black Lives in Guelph, 1890-1945 - This event has already occurred
Tuesday, February 2, 2021 7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
This lecture examines the social life and aspirations of Black men, women, and children from 1890 to 1945. Through telling and retelling of stories of marginalized Black figures in Guelph, the lecture seeks to disrupt the erasure of the historical and contemporary Black presence in southwestern Ontario and raise awareness about the intimate lives of Black people, their vibrant communities, diverse voices, and cultural narratives. Jade Ferguson is an associate professor in the School of English & Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph. Her research and teaching areas include Black art, literature, and activism. Over the last three years, she has worked closely with Guelph Black Heritage Society on a series of community engaged projects on Black voices and stories in Guelph that can be found at blackpastinguelph.com
