Each year in February, Canada celebrates Black History Month, to commemorate and honour the contributions and achievements of Black people.
To celebrate the contributions and richness of the heritage of Black communities, Rhodnie Désir invites us on a journey that is at once geographical, anthropological, historical and artistic—a journey to the heart of the history of people of African descent in the Americas.
Since 2015, Rhodnie Désir has studying Black culture in the Americas. She works to retrace the history of Canadians of African descent, inspired by her ancestors. Driven by the need and the will to transcend her origins, she conceived the pioneering international project BOW’T TRAIL.
