Salon International de la Femme Noire - 2e édition | International Black Women's Expo

Après le succès de sa première édition, Audace au Féminin est fière d’annoncer le retour du Salon International de la Femme Noire (SIFN) le dimanche 9 juin 2019 au Grand quai du Port de Montréal.

C’est l’événement incontournable du Canada des communautés noires qui contribue à l'émancipation des Femmes Noires et Métissées. Le SIFN c'est le lieu pour débattre sur l'actualité, échanger sur des enjeux, rencontrer des modèles féminins Noirs de réussite, avoir accès à toutes les informations aux produits et services et surtout, pour se retrouver entre Femmes Noires.

Soutenir les démarches éducatives et économiques des Filles et des Femmes Noires est d'une portée sociale indéniable et inestimable. Ce soutien pourrait prendre une forme plus spécifique d'éveil et d'incitation aux STIM (Sciences, Technologie, Ingénierie, Mathématiques), tel que souhaite apporter la 2e édition du Salon International de la Femme Noire avec ce thème:
"Femmes Noires d'eSTIMe."

Ce Salon International de la Femme Noire est plus qu'un évènement, c'est un mouvement féminin inclusif.
Et cette année, il se veut aussi participatif en incluant une campagne de sociofinancement avec La Ruche

Pré-vente: 25$ jusqu'au 21 avril 2019
À la porte: 50$

Messieurs vous êtes les bienvenus
--------------------
After the success of its first edition, Audace au Féminin is proud to announce the return of the Salon International Salon de la Femme Noire (SIFN) on Sunday, June 9th, 2019 at the Grand Quai du Port in Montreal.

This is the key event of Canada's black communities that contributes to the emancipation of Mixed and Black Women. The SIFN is the place to debate the news, discuss issues, meet Black women models of success, have access to all information to products and services and especially, find themselves among Black Women.

Supporting the educational and economic approaches of Girls and Black Women is of undeniable and invaluable social significance. This support could take a more specific form of awakening and encouragement to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), as the 2nd edition of the Salon International de la Femme Noire aims to bring about with this theme:
"Black women of eSTEeM."

The Salon International de la Femme Noire is more than an event, it is an inclusive Women's movement. And this year, to involved more people to this movement we had included a crowdfunding campaign with La Ruche.

Pre-sale: $ 25 until April 21, 2019
At the door: $ 50

M. NourbeSe Philip with Donna Bailey Nurse

In recent decades Black Women’s writing has emerged as one of the most prominent and profound literatures in the world. From Chimamanda Adichie in Nigeria to Angie Thomas in the United States to Esi Edugyan in Canada to Zadie Smith in the U.K. – its reach is diasporic. And its stories – set everywhere – unfold at the fiery intersection of race, class and gender. Their writings contemplate the chief mystery of the human condition: Namely, how to liberate the human spirit.

M. NourbeSe Philip is a poet, essayist, novelist, playwright, and former lawyer who lives in Toronto. She is a Fellow of the Guggenheim and Rockefeller (Bellagio) Foundations, and the MacDowell Colony. She is the recipient of many awards, including the Casa de las Americas prize (Cuba). Among her best-known works are: She Tries Her Tongue, Her Silence Softly Breaks, Looking for Livingstone: An Odyssey of Silence, and Zong!, a genre-breaking poem that engages with ideas of the law, history, and memory as they relate to the transatlantic slave trade. Her latest book is Bla_k: Essays and Interviews (2018, Book*hug Press).

Donna Bailey Nurse is a literary journalist living in Toronto. She is a columnist for CBC Radio's The Next Chapter with Shelagh Rogers and her work has appeared in The Globe and Mail, Hazlitt, The National Post, The Toronto Star. She has also contributed to Publishers Weekly and The Washington Post. She is editor of Revival: An Anthology of Black Canadian Writing (M&S) and the author of What's a Black Critic To Do? and What's a Black Critic to Do ll (insomniac Press).

Marlon James // Curious Minds Weekend - Black Leopard Red Wolf

Originally from Jamaica and now based in the United States, Marlon James is one of the world's most electrifying authors. In 2015, he won the prestigious The Man Booker Prize for A Brief History of Seven Killings. Now he returns with Black Leopard, Red Wolf, the stunning first installment of his Dark Star trilogy that is being hailed as an “African Game of Thrones.” At this Canadian debut, James will introduce Toronto readers to the unforgettable story of Tracker, a mercenary scouring the ancient cities of Africa on a hunt for a missing child. As he unveils this epic fictional universe, James will discuss how he created a new kind of contemporary mythology—a work of prodigious imagination that is quickly becoming the year’s most talked-about novel.

"A fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made.” – Neil Gaiman

The Forgotten History of the Caribbean Federation

One of the least known parts of Caribbean History is the short-lived Caribbean Federation of 1952-1968, which united most of the Islands into a single federated government (like Canada is to Quebec and Ontario). What is even less known is how Britain skillfully worked in the background to dismantle this early multi-island government, by pinning the individual interests of each Island against each other, which BROKE the unity.

Unfortunately, little is written about this important chapter of the development of the Islands. Yet, more than ever, this is a moment in history when the Islands should revisit this idea and unite in the face of globalism which is threatening the economic survival of that region.

Join Dr. Chanzo Greenidge and Roger A. Muhammad (both members of the scientific community of Forum économique intl des Noirs (FEIN) ::: Intl Black economic forum (IBEF) ) as we uncover this forgotten history and connect it to the modern reality of the Diaspora.

Also, come discover the Pan-Caribbean ideology that gave birth Caribbean Federation, which was developed by one of the Caribbean Diaspora's greatest thinkers, Richard B. Moore. He was in many ways to Pan-Caribbean ideology what Marcus Mosiah Garvey was to Pan-African ideology.

Knowledge is Power! Come to empower yourself!

Connecting the Dots Film Premiere at the 2019 National Black Canadians Summit

In celebration of Black History Month, and in recognition of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent, Black History Ottawa’s Connecting the Dots project will be premiering its documentary screening and national community conversation in partnership with the National Capital Commission and the Michaëlle Jean Foundation to launch the 2019 National Black Canadians Summit.

In 2018 our team of volunteers embarked on a 6 month, 18-stop nationwide tour to six different provinces highlighting promising practices among Canada's many diverse Black communities. Recognizing the significance of the legacy of Indigenous Black people in Canada, we commenced this tour in Nova Scotia, and connected the dots between Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia. The goal - building Successful Black Communities by sharing recipes for success in the areas of education, art and culture, media and journalism, employment equity, health, justice, economic prosperity, and civic engagement.

About the Connecting the Dots Documentary
Taking place during the UN International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024), the film Connecting the Dots is a story that uncovers African-Canadian truth telling. An eye-opening documentary, this present day narrative reclaims the stories so often taken and used without consent, and amplifies them from within Black communities on a national scale. Follow the inter-generational quest to identify the "promising practices" that will help eradicate anti-black racism, and increase Black capacity now and for the decades beyond 2024.

Honouring legacies that pre-date the country of Canada, this film acknowledges the contributions of People of African Descent in building Canada. This reflective and engaging documentary piece explores the people behind the progress and highlights many of our Black leaders achieving success in areas ranging from economic prosperity to art & culture.

The event will feature:

  • The Premiere of the Connecting the Dots documentary;

  • A panel discussion and Q&A with Director, Producers and Cast members

  • A networking reception.

*This event is business/cocktail attire.

Français

À l'occasion du Mois de l'histoire des Noirs et de la Décennie internationale des personnes d'ascendance africaine, le projet Connecting the Dots de Le Comité de l'histoire des Noirs d'Ottawa présentera en grande première son documentaire et sa conversation nationale avec la communauté noire, lors du lancement du Sommet national des Canadiens Noirs 2019, en partenariat avec la Commission de la Capitale Nationale et la Fondation Michaëlle Jean.

En 2018, notre équipe de bénévoles a entamé une tournée de 6 mois, s’est arrêtée dans 18 villes à travers 6 provinces, afin de mettre en lumière les pratiques prometteuses existantes au sein des nombreuses communautés noires du Canada. Sachant l'importance de l'héritage des Noirs autochtones au Canada, nous avons débuté cette tournée en Nouvelle-Écosse et avons relié les points entre le Québec, l'Ontario, le Manitoba, l'Alberta et la Colombie-Britannique. L'objectif? Créer des communautés noires prospères par le partage des recettes de succès dans les domaines de l'éducation, des arts et de la culture, des médias et du journalisme, de l'équité en matière d'emploi, de la santé, de la justice, de la prospérité économique et de l'engagement civique.

Le documentaire Connecting the Dots

Se déroulant pendant la Décennie internationale des Nations Unies pour les personnes d'ascendance africaine (2015-2024), le film Connecting the Dots est une histoire qui met à jour la vraie histoire des Afro-Canadiens. Documentaire révélateur, ce récit moderne permet aux communautés noires de se réapproprier leur histoire trop souvent inédite et exploitée sans consentement, et les fait briller à l'échelle nationale. Suivez cette quête intergénérationnelle pour identifier les "pratiques prometteuses" qui contribueront à éradiquer le racisme anti-Noir et à faire augmenter les ressources pour les Noirs dès maintenant et pour les décennies à venir au-delà de 2024.

Rendant hommage à l’héritage du Canada, ce film met en lumière les contributions de personnes d’ascendance africaine à la construction du Canada. Ce documentaire portant à réflexion et engageant explore les personnes ayant concouru au progrès et met en vedette nos dirigeants noirs oeuvrant dans diverses domaines, de la prospérité économique à l'art et la culture.

L'événement se déroulera comme suit :

  • La première du documentaire Connecting the Dots;

  • Un panel de discussion et une période de questions / réponses avec le réalisateur, les producteurs et les membres de la distribution

  • Une réception de réseautage.

*Tenue cocktail d'affaires requis.

Blackout: The Concordia Computer Protests, 50 years later

Tickets | Billets
https://tableaudhote.ca/blackout - 438 788 3529 //

In 1969, students occupied the computer centre on the 9th floor of the Hall Building of what is now Concordia University to protest the university’s mismanagement of a racism complaint lodged by West-Indian students against their biology professor. Riot police were called in when an agreement to end the occupation fell through, resulting in widespread damage, a mysterious fire, and over a hundred arrests. Created and devised by some of Montréal’s most prolific artists, Blackout re-examines the events that led to the occupation and protests, asking how race relations have changed in Québec over the last 50 years.

En 1969, des étudiants occupent le centre informatique situé au 9e étage du Henry F. Hall de l’Université Concordia pour protester contre la mauvaise gestion de l’Université suite à une plainte pour racisme déposée par des étudiants antillais contre leur professeur. Après deux semaines d’occupation, et face à l’échec d’un accord, l’escouade anti-émeute intervient pour disperser les protestataires. Le bilan est lourd, les dégâts considérables (plus de 2 millions en dommage) et la police procède à une centaine d’arrestations. Développé et conçu par certains des artistes anglophones les plus prolifiques de Montréal, Blackout retrace la série d’évènements ayant conduits à ce soulèvement. Cinquante ans plus tard, les relations raciales au Québec ont-elles évoluées ? //
