Event description
OALT/ABO Lunch & Learn: Oshawa’s Black History – One Family’s Story

About this event

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 and the steps taken to research outside the traditional narrative. We follow the matriarch Wealthy as she travels from Vermont to Lower Canada and finally Upper Canada and examine the challenges of finding primary sources related to marginalized communities. 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.
