The BLACQ Project was created out of the need to better understand Quebec’s Black history particularly for the Black anglophone community where race and language have been barriers towards social inclusion, belonging and identity.
Last year the BCRC partnered with 3 community organizations to produce projects that focused on social inclusion, identity and cultural awareness of Quebec’s Black English-speaking community. This year the BCRC has created 3 new projects with the goal of exploring identity and belonging. Click on a project below to learn more:

The B.L.A.C.Q. Project has been funded by the Secrétariat aux relations avec les Québécois d’expression anglaise and the COM-Unity. We also acknowledge that without our great partners, this project couldn’t be possible. A special thanks to our partners: Concordia University, Black Theatre Workshop, West-Can Folk Performing Company, Lectures Logos Readings, Kola Magazine and Youth in Motion.
