For Jinny and her PEI students Black History Month 2007

February 17, 2007

Black History Month on Prince Edward Island:

Hi Jinny, Here are some supplemental resources that I have been developing and/or uploading using Web 2.0 technologies since the fall of 2006. I am touched when PEI students are able to use some of my teaching, learning and research resources. I have made my home on other islands and even another continent, but I am deeply grateful that my childhood and youth unfolded in Charlottetown and Rocky Point and my family’s story is rooted in Prince Edward Island.

I will use this page to keep track of additions to my Web 2.0 virtual villages on themes of Black History Month, African Canadian History, and the Positive Presence of Absence.

    I found your blog while (re)searching. I’d like to share something I, too wrote for Black History Month. Please feel free to read it and to share if the impulse strikes you. Thank you.


  2. Thanks dardaughta,

    Your site is raw, honest and powerful! Your words speak with such force against the background photo. I notice details in the background like the mass of white lilies, the flickering candle, the drawings and photos on the wall . . . That’s what strong women can do . . . cry out from the depths of pain, bring forth new life and take care of the details in everyday life all at the same time.

    I have met a number of ‘strong women in big trucks’ who were leading social change in small remote communities such as Northern Canada and in Nunavut.

    You have added gifts of being able to use your words as an artform and the ability to engage with great minds.

    I will be thinking of you in your struggles . . .
