Description

Should we honour Canada's first prime minister, John A. Macdonald? Or Christopher Columbus, after whom the province is named? The stories we tell about the past have real consequences for people in the present and who we publicly commemorate matters.

In the inaugural Paul and Eileen Lin Commemorative Lecture, Timothy J. Stanley, historian and author of Contesting White Supremacy: School Segregation, Anti-racism, and the Making of Chinese Canadians, illustrates ways of developing anti-racist and decolonized histories of inclusion for British Columbia and Canada.

In partnership with the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of B.C.
