The time has come again for BCRC’s annual Dr. Charles Drew Blood Drive!

BCRC’s Dr. Charles Drew Blood Drive arose out of a shared need with Héma-Québec to increase the number of blood donations from the black community. The black community faces shortages with the growing number of Sickle-Cell, kidney disease, and other conditions requiring blood and tissue matching. BCRC agreed to partner with Héma-Québec to encourage blacks to give for their community’s needs. Events like this help promote engagement and involvement in these communities. Our goal is to acquire over 100 donors this year.

Please come, bring a friend and give 15 minutes to save someone’s life by giving blood.

The Black Community Resource Centre invites you to participate in our project “Living History: 100 Years of Black History, Culture and Heritage.” We will be creating 15 Memoryscapes of sites, organizations, and landmarks of cultural and historical significance to the English-speaking Black community of Montréal. These oral histories enable the listener to experience the hidden history of a place by listening to the memories of past and present inhabitants, while also documenting and celebrating the significant contributions of the Black Anglo community. The project will use cultural geography, documentation, and audio history approaches to observing, recording, and videotaping the history of English-speaking Blacks in Montréal since 1900.

If you are interested in additional information or the possibility of participating in this project please attend the information session or email us at livinghistory@bcrcmontreal.com

Black Theatre Workshop is proud to present Rendez-vous With Home written and performed by Djennie Laguerre, and directed by Dayane Ntibarikure. Rendez-Vous with home is the story of sisters Josephine and Suzette, who are sent by their mother on a trip to Haiti to bury their father, a man they barely knew. Josephine, who has scant memories of her father, is anxious. Suzette, on the other hand, has no memories of her father and considers the trip an all-expenses paid vacation. But what the two sisters experience in Haiti proves to be more moving than they had expected – a journey of discovery combined with love, humour, and Haitian oral and dance traditions.

This production is being presented in both official languages – schools may select a performance in either English or French!

Come  out and join us every Friday from 10 a.m – 12 p.m. for our Seniors Knitting Group!
