“Meet Chloe” by Cameron Grant
November 27, 2021 @ 12:00 am - May 13, 2022 @ 12:00 am EST
It’s another day of online history class. Chloe is working with her group on a research project about John Graves Simcoe, but she discovers another historical figure that she is much more interested in learning about, someone who even shares the same first name: Chloe Cooley, an enslaved woman who lived in Niagara-on-the-Lake in the 1760’s.
CAN CHLOE CONVINCE HER TEACHER, AND HER PROJECT PARTNERS, TO SWITCH THEIR TOPIC TO COOLEY’S STORY WEEKS BEFORE THE PROJECT IS DUE?
Meet Chloe explores the challenges Black students face in the education system and the lack of Black curriculum content in the study of Canadian History.
FOR GRADES 7 TO 10
JOIN US ON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 27TH AT 7 PM FOR THE PUBLIC PREMIERE OF THIS BRAND NEW DIGITAL WORK!
Enjoy a welcome chat with the cast and crew, followed by a screening of Meet Chloe. This event will be hosted on the virtual platform Gather, where attendees will have the opportunity to create a digital avatar to engage with other guests and learn more about the show. Make sure to sign the guestbook! Then stay after the show for a talkback session with the creative team where they will answer questions about working on the show and influences from Black history in Niagara.
There is no charge for this event. Instead, we will provide a way to make donations to TOES Niagara, a local non-profit organization that empowers immigrant and racially marginalized women and their families through their services and advocates for Black communities in Welland and across Niagara.
Please RSVP by Wednesday November 24th. Attendees will receive an invitation link to our event space in Gather on Thursday November 25th.
We can’t wait to see you at our Meet Chloe livestream event!
