Hope Meets Action with curator Joshua Robertson
The BC Black History Awareness Society in partnership with the Royal BC Museum will open a new exhibition called Hope Meets Action: Echoes Through the Black Continuum on August 14. This exhibition is the story of Afro-diasporic “British Columbia” history, past, present and future. Black “British Columbian” history has long been whitewashed in the annals of colonial history.
Written, told and designed by Black voices, this exhibition reclaims and retells the complicated history of stolen people on stolen land, and how the contributions of Black leaders echo across the centuries into the present.
For this session of RBCM @ Home (Summer), we will be in conversation with the writer and curator of the exhibition, Joshua Robertson.
RBCM @ Home (Summer) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.
