Black Canadians place in history?

Black Canadians Fight for a Place in History

SooNews Staff -- SooNews.ca -- Monday, May 22, 2006, 3:14PM

Story by Dr. Charles Quist-Adade

Pressure is growing from African Canadians for the teaching of black history in schools. Groups of black parents, teachers and historians say Eurocentric versions of history have neglected the contributions of minority groups, including the country's indigenous people and Chinese Canadians.

The struggle to include black history in school curricula has scored small recent advances. However, advocates say the battle is far from over, and fear that even their modest gains could be undermined by a combination of conservative resistance and public spending cuts.
