August 14, 2021: “Hope Meets Action: Echoes through The Black Continuum”

BC Black History Awareness Society in partnership with the Royal BC Museum opened this exhibition on August 14, 2021. Hope Meets Action: Echoes Through the Black Continuum, the story of Afro-diasporic ‘British Columbia’ history, past, present and future.  Written, told and designed by Black voices, this exhibition reclaims and retells the complicated history of stolen people on stolen land, and how the contributions of Black leaders echo across the centuries into the present; a history that has long been whitewashed in the annals of colonial history.
The exhibition is open at the Royal BC Museum until March 31, 2022; it will then become a travelling exhibition around the Province for an indefinite period of time. About the project
