Alberta History Streams From the NFB for Black History Month
For more than thirty years Cheryl Foggo has chronicled the story of the thriving Black community on the Prairies, including pioneers who lived, worked, and raised families in the west. Her documentary which tells the story of one memorable man, John Ware, is available for free starting February 8 on the website of the National Film Board, nfb.ca. "John Ware Reclaimed" explores the life of a Black rancher who settled in Alberta in the 1880's. Cheryl Foggo joins Russell by phone to chat about the film and her work.
