    Black in British Columbia; Resilience and Erasure

    Black in British Columbia; Resilience and Erasure

    In honour of Black History Month 2022 (February), we hosted “Black in British Columbia: Resilience and Erasure” presented by Kathleen Johnson (founder of the Facebook group “Critical Black Thought Society” and Alberta Representative for Humanist Canada)

    This talk was recorded February 22, 2022 via Zoom

    Kathleen shared a look at how Black settlers came to British Columbia, what life was like, how they contributed, and how that history has been all but erased from the culture of British Columbia.

    About Kathleen: "I am a diversity and inclusion specialist and coach marginalized professionals, entrepreneurs, and artists. I write and speak on various platforms about diversity issues. I founded a group on Facebook called Critical Black Thought Society with almost 400 members, and am the Alberta Representative for Humanist Canada. This past October I represented the Humanist position at the World Religions Conference on Racism. I was born and raised in Calgary, and am a 1st generation Canadian with parents from Grenada, West Indies, who immigrated to Canada in the early 1970's. I have 5 human children and 1 fur baby."

    The Private School Giveaway

    The Private School Giveaway

    The Government of British Columbia gives hundreds of millions of dollars to private schools in the province.

    Our new research shows that the overwhelming majority of these schools are for the religious or economic elites.

    In this talk, BCHA Executive Director Ian Bushfield and Policy Research Adriana Thom will detail where this money goes, what these schools are teaching and who gets shut out.
