Description

Item consists of a home movie featuring the end of a school performance with the last song “celebrating our differences” and includes a speech about diversity and thank yous.

Project and donor(s) contributed description follows: “At North Agincourt Junior Public School a group of elementary school children are performing at a concert either in 2003 or 2004. Large drawings hung in the background of different countries indicate that the concert is likely a multicultural day celebration performed for parents.
“The running joke at Agincourt Collegiate Institute is that white people are the visible minority.”

Since Cindy was very young when moving to Canada, she identifies more with having immigrant parents than being an immigrant herself. Cindy had a lot of friends that shared similar cultural backgrounds, and experiences as the community of Agincourt where she lives is largely Chinese, East and South Asian, and Tamil.”
