This year, the City of Edmonton, Africa Centre, Edmonton Community Foundation, and Edmonton Heritage Council partnered to provide resources to amplify and support the efforts of organizations that work to uplift Black communities. To this end, EHC’s initiative ECAMP (Edmonton City as Museum Project) has published a new blog post for Black History Month.
To learn more about the projects funded through the Black History Month Initiative and to sign up for Black History Month events, please visit the National Black Coalition of Canada – Edmonton Chapter’s Black History Month calendar. Download the new Black History in Edmonton PDF for a small sample of the EHC-supported programming that enriches our city in February and throughout the year.
The latest ECAMP story is Roads of Misery: Following an Afro-Indigenous Family from Oklahoma to Edmonton (And Back Again) by Dr. Russell Cobb, author of the upcoming book The Ghosts of Crook County: An Oil Fortune, A Phantom Child, and the Fight for Indigenous Land.
