Establishment of a Virtual Museum
The virtual museum is a collection of the heritage, contributions and journeys of people of African ancestry who have lived and now live in Saskatchewan. Its primary purpose is to research, collect, document and share information through the medium of the Internet.
Celebrating Canadians of African Ancestry as well as Successes of Multiculturalism in Saskatchewan
Current work in this area focuses on establishment of a public art that will serve as a commemorative piece and that complements Saskatchewan’s motto, “From many peoples, strength” while at the same time recognizing Dr. Alfred Shadd, a resident of African ancestry who throughout his life exemplified the spirit of multiculturalism and the principles of equity, equality, and human dignity.
