February 23, 2022, 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
On Wednesday, February 23, BC’s Office of the Human Rights Commissioner (BCOHRC) is hosting a virtual screening of our “I love my human rights” video series with a story featuring documentary filmmaker Anthony Brown.
Brown is a seventh generation Black Canadian and has produced several documentaries, including a full-length documentary titled “Go Do Something Great” and “Secret Victoria: The Rush for Freedom” which explores Black history in the B.C.
Following the screening, Brown will join Biraima and Vanessa, two young Black activists and leaders from Daily Dose of Blackness, in an intergenerational conversation on Black history, past, present and future. Daily Dose of Blackness is a group of Black youth based in Surrey, B.C. who came together to share their struggles and experiences, and center and celebrate Black youth.
This video is the latest in a series BCOHRC is producing as part of our mandate to educate British Columbians about systemic discrimination and how to dismantle it.
The “I love my human rights” project uses video storytelling as a tool to help personalize complex human rights concepts and encourage empathy and action. The video will be released publicly following the screening.
