Founded by professor emeritus Quintard Taylor, BlackPast.Org is a free and unrestricted 6,000 page reference center dedicated to providing information to the general public on African American history and the history of more than one billion people of African ancestry around the world. The site also features hundreds of entries and articles on the website related to provinces and territories in Canada. Black Canadians have shaped the history and culture of the country, and we invite you to explore these resources to familiarize yourself with these stories.
