The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is hosting a great exhibition, Position As Desired / Exploring African Canadian Identity: Photographs from the Wedge Collection, from January 22nd to March 30th . This award winning exhibition on African Canadian identity was first exhibited at the Royal Ontario Museum in 2010. Now it is our turn.
Lawrence Hill is Coming to Town! As part of this exciting exhibit, The Museum is also planning a community reading event with Lawrence Hill and his 2001 book, Black Berry, Sweet Juice: growing up Black and White in Canada. (M) Readers are encouraged to read the book and to come and meet and listen to Lawrence Hill at Pier 21. Or come and meet the author, pick up a signed copy and then read the book. Either way is good.
Space is limited and Lawrence Hill is a huge draw, so I encourage you to book your spot now. Contact information is listed below.
