I created this history resource for the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) to teach youth & educators about the history of the Black Women's Collective. The creation of this booklet was funded in part by Canadian Heritage. You can download the booklet on CCGSD's website or below. 
The Black Women's Collective was an important activist group and place of community for Black women in Toronto. The group welcomed many Black queer women and spearheaded many activist events and demonstrations in Toronto from 1986-1989. ​​​​​​​​​​​
