Populations of African descent have been geographically present within the territory that constitutes Canada for over three centuries. While cinematic representation is a relatively recent phenomena that has only been a factor over the last few decades it may serve as an archive or library that preserves the memories of past, current and future generations of African Canadian populations. The focus of this Masters project is the cinematic representation of African Canadians and how this representation has been translated into the burgeoning online environment as characterized by the rise of the Internet and “Web 2.0” technologies. The project is comprised of a written component in the form of a project paper and a web technology component in the form of a research blog African Canadian Cinema: A Guide to African Canadian & African Diaspora Cinema.
