A Black People’s History of Canada (BPHC) is a three-year project initiated and funded 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.
From July 26 to 27, 2022, A Black People’s History of Canada presents the inaugural conference Past/Future: African Canadian History, Arts and Culture in STEM Education, taking place at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. It explores Black Canadian history, and further investigates how it can be integrated into STEM education. Teachers, academics, students, and cultural workers will offer panels, workshops, and cultural presentations.
