HELP MAKE 2021 THE YEAR OF CANADIAN BLACK HISTORY


Thanks so much for visiting our GOFUNDME page and supporting the critical work of bringing the real history of the Black Canadians who helped build our country to schools.  

Did you know that most teachers do not have access to easy-to-use, complete resources to teach the Canadian Black History stories that do NOT appear in our textbooks?  These stories  inspire our students, help heal our divisions, and equip our kids for the future. That’s why our schools desperately need The ABC’s of Canadian Black History Kit!

The Kit was co-created by historian, professor and author, Dr. Dorothy Williams, a NOMINEE for the Governor General's History Award for Excellence in Community Programming, and veteran community developer, Linton Garner.

Visit the Blacbiblio website  and see below for Kit details. The kit is in schools in Quebec, PEI and Manitoba and almost 100 Ontario schools adopted the kit this year for Black History Month. 
  
We have been working hard since late 2020, raising funds to take The ABC's of Canadian Black History Kit ONLINE to make Canadian Black History learning accessible and affordable for schools and families across Canada.  With the help of our early supporters, we were able to launch our online MAKING CONNECTIONS Matching and Memory Game just in time for Black History Month.

Our ongoing fundraising will help us launch the ABC's ONLINE PILOT later this year, with the fully functional system coming for schools and home use across Canada for Black History Month 2022.
