Join the Commission to celebrate Black History Month in Canada!

You are invited to join a virtual movie screening of The Road Taken followed by a Q&A with the director of the film, Selwyn Jacob, on February 22nd at 5:00 to 7:00 pm MST.

The Road Taken is a nostalgic ride through the 1900s about Black sleeping-car porters working on the Canadian railways. The film explores how anti-Black racism and discrimination affected the car-porters’ livelihoods, and portrays their fight for justice.
