Tracing Black Histories throughout the QEP program
As we at LEARN curate and build learning materials for the new HQC program here, we are allowing ourselves to wander into its various margins. Expanding on the program's "knowledge" lists, we are beginning a process that traces the contributions of different groups, over time and into the future, in Quebec and elsewhere too. We have only just begun, but feel free to take a look here

ABC's of Canadian Black History
The ABC’s of Canadian Black History is a pre-designed curriculum enhancer tailored to an educator’s perspective for in-class teaching, presentations as well as in-depth study and research. The Kit can be used in elementary through university to inform students of the contributions of the Black community to the development of Canada since the 1600’s. The largely ignored historical role of Blacks throughout Canadian history is particularly relevant today in the multiethnic and multicultural environments in our present day schools and educational institutions.
