Scope and content

Item consists of a Black-Canadian family’s home movie featuring Christmas brunch.

Donor(s) and project contributed description follows: "Daily life in Montreal, Quebec. This footage shows Heather trying to teach her younger sister Hazel how to brush her teeth. Heather describes this footage as “normal kids doing normal things.” Heather recalls playing at the park across from her family home a lot and riding their bikes. She describes the home in this footage as her “first family home in Montreal,” specifically located on Couvrette Street in St. Laurent, which is a borough in Montreal, Quebec. Additional footage shows the family with some cousins, enjoying Christmas brunch, at their third home, once again back in St. Laurent – this time on Lippé Street, where they lived for about three or four years. When asked about participating in Home Made Visible, Heather spoke about how important she believes the project is: “When I heard about it [Home Made Visible], I thought what a great opportunity to show a black Canadian family living like everybody else.” She reflected that the archival footage would be around for generations. “We’re part of Canada’s history. We’ve contributed to Canada’s success. We’re part of the fabric of Canadian society.””
