Celebrating Black History Month

Join us for a special presentation by the Wellington Museum and Archives in celebration of Black History Month.

 

At its peak, the Black Canadian settlements of the Pierpoint Settlement near Fergus and the Queens Bush were comprised of hundreds of Black Canadian families many of whom had escaped the worst kind of persecution and violence to build a new life for themselves in this area. Join us to learn more about these pioneers who helped to make our community what it is today. Please register.
