Generation X Marks the Spot: Black History in Mississauga

February 16 @ 12:00 pm - December 8 @ 4:00 pm

Free

BIPOC Community Curator Exhibition at the Bradley Museum

Curator Dayo Kefentse presents Generation X Marks the Spot, an exhibition exploring Black history in Mississauga. This project tells the story of young Caribbean Canadians who shaped a distinct Canadian culture here in the 1980s. Central to their experience was the importance of making societal change. In an audio documentary, former youth members of the Black Action Defense Committee (BADC) talk about their activism following the police shooting of a Black teenager, Michael Wade Lawson, in Mississauga. Included in the exhibition is a new video interview with Ingrid Pellew-Berkeley – former Deputy Chief with the Peel Regional Police – who was one of the officers to arrive on scene that night. In conversation with Dayo, Ingrid shares how Michael’s death affected her personally and professionally, and how policing in Ontario changed as a result.
