This film screening is one of a series of events organized for Black History Month at McGill's School of Population and Global Health.
Join us in learning about the Black history of Montreal's Little Burgundy neighborhood, home to a Black population led by Black men who worked in Canada's railway industry as sleeping car porters. They were the first Black trade union to organize in North America and were among the leaders in the struggle for civil rights. (BLK: An Origin Story)
