Many Rivers to Cross: The African Canadian Experience examines the important place that people of African descent have occupied in Canada from the 17th century to the present. It addresses a range of subjects – migration, culture, the struggle for justice, and work – all in the context of the development, over the past 400 years, of a complex, vibrant community and supportive community life. The exhibit has been well-received. Launched in the Grand Hall of the Canadian Museum of Civilization (now the Canadian Museum of History) at a gala opening addressed by the Prime Minister, it was on view at the museum for eight months. It then toured the country for two years. A virtual exhibit provides a glimpse of the content of this travelling exhibit.
Additional Information: The current version of the exhibit is composed of 30 framed photographs mounted on light-weight foam core. The photographs are 18″ x 24″ in both vertical and horizontal formats. Hardware is not included.
