The presence of Africans and persons of African descent in Quebec goes back more than 300 years but remains largely unknown. Many Quebeckers still believe that Blacks arrived only recently. However, Blacks have always been part of the Quebec and Canadian experience, since the first moments of European colonization, French, then British.
The Afromuseum is the leading institution to represent the contributions of Afro-Canadians to the cultural landscape of Canada.
Supporting the Afromuseum allows Afro-Canadians' influence
to be noticed, celebrated and shared all over the world.
Your donations will help the primary mission of the Afromuseum:
making Afro-Canadian culture acessible to all.
*All donations of $20.00 or above will
receive a tax-deductible receipt from the Afromuseum sent to you by email.
