Launch of African Canadian Black History Month
Join the MacKenzie Art Gallery as we celebrate the launch of African Canadian Black History Month in partnership with the Saskatchewan African Canadian Heritage Museum Inc., including greetings from community representatives. This will be followed by a film screening. John Ware Reclaimed follows filmmaker Cheryl Foggo on her quest to re-examine the mythology surrounding John Ware, the Black cowboy who settled in Alberta, Canada, before the turn of the 20th century. Foggo’s research uncovers who this iconic figure might have been, and what his legacy means in terms of anti-Black racism, both past and present.
Closed captions will be available during the film screening in our program space.
