To mark Black History Month in February, the Vancouver Maritime Museum has partnered with the National Congress of Black Women Foundation (NCBWF) to present Changing the Narrative, a virtual workshop about teaching the history of Black Canadians in British Columbia. The workshop will take place on February 12 at 10:00 am.
The two-hour workshop will include:
- the screening of a short video
- panel discussion with three prominent Lower Mainland community members
- question-and-answer session
- quiz that educators can use in their classrooms
For over 35 years, the (NCBWF) has been an instrumental link in connecting Black community members that includes but is not limited to people from Africa, the Caribbean, Canada and America. The organization continues to promote and facilitate activities and programs that foster the advancement, recognition, health and education of female/female-identifying people of African descent and their families.
This workshop is ideal for educators looking for Black history resources for their classroom and for anyone interested in learning about the immense contributions Black Canadians have made in this province.
Tickets for Changing the Narrative are $20 for educators and adults and $10 for students.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will go towards the NCBWF Fall 2021 scholarship/bursary fund which will award 2021 students $1000 to go toward their education.
