This week we’re in Canada taking a look at black Canadian history and culture! The first recorded African man in Canada was Mathieu da Costa who arrived in 1608 and acted as an interpreter for the French coloniser Samuel de Champlain. You’ve surely heard of Harriet Tubman! She was instrumental in helping enslaved Africans escape to freedom in Canada. And have you heard of Africville in Nova Scotia? For 150 years it was home to a sizeable Black Canadian population, until they were forcibly displaced as the settlement was condemned by the authorities and deconstructed. We speak about all this and so much more, in this video!

It’s surprsing how little the Dutch’s involvement in the Transatlantic Slave Trade is talked about considering that they trafficked an estimated half a million enslaved Africans during that time! This episode throws up a lot of interesting questions about how we regard cultural traditions in a modern context where race and racism are concerned. We talk fine art, golden carriages and black face in this bite-sized look at black history in the Netherlands.
