“Worlds Within: Diverse Histories, Identities, and Experiences of Black People of African Ancestry in British Columbia”

Between February 2020 and March 2022, the African Ancestry Project, led by Alice Muthoni Mũrage in partnership with BC Black History Awareness Society, conducted research through a survey, interviews, and focus group discussions. The history, data and stories of over 160 participants from BC were woven together and made part of a comprehensive and inclusive report on the vast diversity of people of African ancestry in the province. The report was released on March 5, 2022. The Project’s work continued with a Youth Dialogue, a series of three virtual youth dialogues engaging 40 young people between ages 15 and 19. The final phase will produce three videos documenting the youth dialogue.
