Archivist, Jennifer Weymark, explains how the Oshawa Museum learned about one of the first Black families in Oshawa.
This lecture traces the lives of one of Oshawa’s first Black families. We follow the matriarch Wealthy as she travels from Vermont to Lower Canada and finally Upper Canada. Four generations of this family, living everyday lives, have exposed the biases and prejudice of the time, but also the strength and courage of conviction they had.
This is an online lecture via Zoom.
