Dr. Natasha Henry-Dixon’s talk will highlight Black voices throughout our history, focusing on the perspectives of Black people in Canada on a range of issues that affected their lives.

Through examples, Henry-Dixon will demonstrate how exploring historical Black voices helps us to gain insight into their self-assertion, individual and collective consciousness, and shared aspirations for the future.

Natasha Henry-Dixon is an assistant professor of African Canadian History at York University. The 2018 Vanier Scholar is researching the enslavement of Black people in colonial Ontario. Her publications include Emancipation Day: Celebrating Freedom in Canada (June 2010), Talking about Freedom: Celebrating Freedom in Canada (2012), a number of youth-focused titles, and several entries for the Canadian Encyclopedia on African Canadian history. Through her various professional, academic, and community roles, Natasha’s work is grounded in her commitment to research, collect, preserve, and disseminate the histories of Black Canadians.
