In the first half of this session Fran Morrison tells the story of the migration and settlement of Black people from 1858 to 1871, their achievements, as well as the attitudes towards Black people in British Columbia historically, through an overview of subjects such as education, employment, social issues, legal issues and the political environment. After the break, Karen Hoshal, who is a member of the Black pioneering Alexander family, will talk about the Black pioneers of the area and the province. The original black settlers represented a wide spectrum of backgrounds and professions and contributed substantially to the settlement of this province.
