Since a young age, I had developed a profound connection to the brain, emotions and social interaction, which ultimately led to my passion for the subject of psychology. I was always curious to find answers, thus leading to many long nights of extensive research periods regarding the studies of psychology. Today, I am that same person, budding with questions that I work hard to answer through collaboration with academics and other associates, as well as by conducting my own research.
The schools I previously attended had limited teachings regarding Black History, which I found appalling. Though we were minorities, we still had the right to obtain teachings of our diverse Black history, through carefully crafted courses to commemorate the Black revolutionaries who paved the way. Thus, when I saw this project, I knew it was a positive stance needed to help many in our community discover their hidden rich and unique histories. I wish to encourage not only myself, but others to understand and educate themselves regarding their cultures and ethnicities, even if they do not see them represented.
Thus, this chapter will discuss the 40s, spanning Black enlistment in the Royal Canadian Airforce, to the Black musical triumphs which stimulated the period’s culture.
