Go do some great thing
Go do some great thing is a DVD about the first black men and women to immigrate to the British colony of Vancouver Island in 1858.
Two key influences shaped the black community in British Columbia. First, the pioneers came with the intention to intergrate not segregate. Go Do Some Great Thing deals head on with the issue of racial persecution, it spans two centuries and three countries (Canada, the United States, and Great Britain), and it is a story with a noble goal to define us as a people.
The cost of the DVD is $22.74 including GST and PST. For more info, contact Anthony Brown at 604-671-3147 or 604-461-3275.
