Black History Month
Black History Month 2021
The City of Vancouver engaged BlackArt Gastown to create and curate a photo map called Give Them Their Flowers that celebrates ten Black residents who are making impactful contributions to life in Vancouver. Give Them Their Flowers aims to celebrate and pay respect to ambitious local Black leaders and creators, daylighting the rich Black settlement history in Vancouver, adding to the scope of public representation, and uplifting the presence of Black community.
Learn more about these leaders and their hopes for Black communities in Vancouver.
A site full of resources and stories that offers a rich learning environment for educators, students, researchers and historians.
