Quote Of The Day

“In my engagement with African Canadian history, I have come to realize that Black history has less to do with Black people and more with White pride. If Black history narratives make Whites feel good, it is allowed to surface; if not, it is suppressed and buried. That is why slavery has been erased from the collective consciousness. It is about an ignoble and unsavory past, and because it cast Whites in a “bad” light, they as chroniclers of the country’s past, creators and keepers of its traditions and myths, banished this past to the dustbins of history.” -Afua Cooper
