I’m an emerging singer-songwriter, poet and playwright from Tiotia:ke/Montreal. I have an undergraduate in literature. As storytelling is one of my greatest passions, I would like to explore the different types of mediums for storytelling throughout my life. As a second-generation immigrant, I’ve always wanted to know more about the history of black Canadians, particularly because we aren’t taught about it in school although it is part of Canadian history. This project gave me the opportunity to do so. It gave me the opportunity to learn more about the people that came before me, the dreams they nurtured and the accomplishments they have made in this great city and realize a childhood dream. In fact, as a child a dream of mine was to be able to contribute to the elevation of the black stories as black stories are the beginning of human history and being able to participate in this project is an honour to me and a small step in the direction of that dream. For this project, I will be covering chapter eight that starts with the October crisis and covers the years 1970 to 1975. My hopes are that more black Canadians learn about these amazing organizations, people and events.
