Black History Matters - Oscar Peterson

Regular price $35

"Black History Matters" is a merchandise campaign that uses QR code technology to raise awareness of Black figures in Canadian history, as well as education and resources surrounding how to better show up as an ally, for Black individuals today. 

Each shirt features a Black, Canadian historical figure who we wanted to feature- Viola Desmond, Oscar Peterson, Rosemary Brown, and Fred Thomas. The QR Code leads to the microsite with more information about their impact on Canadian history, as well as allyship tips from our Anti-Racism Speakers, terms and definitions, and additional resources for continued learning and support.
