Yoanna Joseph is passionate about storytelling and has an undergraduate in literature. As a second-generation immigrant, She always wanted to know more about the history of black Canadians, particularly because she wasn’t taught about it in school although it is part of Canadian history. This project gave her the opportunity to do so. It gave her the opportunity to learn more about the people that came before her, the dreams they nurtured, and the accomplishments they have made in this great city. It also helped her realize a childhood dream of hers as she always wanted to be able to contribute to the elevation of black stories and being able to participate in this project is a great honor to her and a small step towards that dream. For this project, Yoanna will cover chapter eight, which starts with the October crisis and covers the years 1970 to 1975. Her hopes are that more Canadians learn about these amazing organizations, people, and events and that hopefully some of it will be presented in schools.
