Writing Our Way to Freedom: The Commemoration of the Congress of Black Writers – February 6, 2019 at the McGill Faculty Club.

In 1968, Black Caribbean university students at McGill and Sir George Williams, along with members of Montreal’s Black community, organized the Congress of Black Writers at McGill.

Over 50 years later, we will again gather at McGill to commemorate this historic event and explore the multitude of ways that Black people continue to fight for justice using their voices and words, as they write their way to freedom.
