Vernon’s The Black Prairie Archives: A Discussion
Keywords:Black Prairie, archives, prairie history, Winnipeg, racism
Some of the long-standing silence about Black prairie pasts was punctured in 2020 and 2021. In June of 2020 some 15,000 people gathered in Winnipeg in the name of Justice4BlackLives. Early in 2022, viewers should be able to watch a television series inspired by Winnipeg’s sleeping car porters, and it will be the biggest Black-led television production ever made in Canada. We still know too little about Black prairie pasts, and Vernon’s book, and these thoughtful responses to it, give us crucial ways to start better considering Black prairie histories.
