BLACK STUDIES PROGRAMS // Over the past five years, there has been an emergence of Black Studies programs across Canada. Students and scholars are looking to fill in a "longtime curriculum gap" according to a CBC report from fall of 2021. Universities in Windsor and Waterloo are also building towards this addition in their curriculum in the near future.
Dalhousie University, Halifax - Black African Diaspora
Queen's University, Kingston - Black Studies
Ryerson University, Toronto - Black Studies (Fall 2022)
York University, Toronto - Black Canadian Studies
Most campuses will have a list of organizations available through the Student Council/Government, or a dedicated day/week during the school year where you can learn more about the available groups and their mandates.
It's always great to build with your classmates outside of the classroom, and build upon your commonalities like hobbies, interests, programs of study, and culture. By joining culturally-specific student groups, you can also benefit from common experiences and histories that will bring you comfort and often empowerment as well when you discover you are not alone on this important academic (and social) journey.
Here is a growing list of Black student organizations at Canadian colleges and universities. Connect, support, and empower these voices throughout their studies and beyond.
Please be patient, as the list will be continuously evolving and expanding. We welcome your additions or adjustments, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you're interested in researching the history of Black student movements, from an African-American perspective, Ibram X. Kendi wrote The Black Campus Movement: Black Students and the Racial Reconstruction of Higher Education, 1965 - 1972.
Here's the book's overview: "Between 1965 and 1972, African American students at upwards of a thousand historically Black and white American colleges and universities organized, demanded, and protested for Black Studies, progressive Black universities, new faces, new ideas--in short, a truly diverse system of higher education relevant to the Black community."
It continues to outline: "Taking inspiration from the Black Power Movement, Black students drew support from many quarters--including White, Latino, Chicano, Asian American, and Native American students--and disrupted and challenged institutions in nearly every state. By the end, black students had thoroughly reshaped the face of the academy."
In addition: "The Black Campus Movement provides the first national study of this remarkable and inspiring struggle, illuminating the complex context for one of the most transformative educational movements in American history, and providing a groundbreaking prehistory of black student activism from abolition through the 1960s. The book synthesizes records from more than three hundred colleges and universities, including documents from 163 college archives, into one national story. This authoritative study is essential to understanding modern American higher education."
