Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Resources

We are sharing book titles, articles, videos and podcasts to help support our members' continuing work of anti-racism and equity, and to help deepen our understanding of Canada’s diverse communities.

We would love to hear if you have found this column helpful, or if there are other ways that you would like to see BCPVPA share resources. Contact Erin Hughes.

This Black History Month we are excited to share stories, events, articles, films and more. As our President, Darren Danyluk outlined in his column there are many BC and Canadian sources to learn and relearn from. Below are a few events that you may consider participating in this month, that are available both in person and virtually.

African Decent Society of BC | Events
African Descent Heritage Month 2022
The ADS of BC have extensive events planned this month for both in-person and virtual formats. Some of their activities include stories told through fashion, heritage walking tours, and oral history through song. Be sure to tune in to one of these fascinating sessions.

UBC Museum of Anthropology | Exhibit & Film Festival
Sanfoka Exhibit & Sanfoka Film Festival
"Sankofa: African Routes, Canadian Roots looks at some of the divergent—and often fragmented—paths of political mobilization and cultural assertion that African and Black people in the diaspora have taken."

If you are located within the Lower Mainland, another way to engage in learning about Black histories is through the current exhibition at UBC MOA. This exhibit will speak to Black experiences through the lenses of contemporary artists of African descent.
