African Heritage Month Film Screening: John Ware Reclaimed

February 9 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

John Ware Reclaimed follows filmmaker Cheryl Foggo on her quest to re-examine the mythology surrounding John Ware, the Black cowboy who settled in Alberta, Canada, before the turn of the 20th century. Foggo’s research uncovers who this iconic figure might have been, and what his legacy means in terms of anti-Black racism, both past and present.

Runtime: 73 minutes. Content warning: Please note this film contains explicit language. Viewer discretion is advised.

This event is presented with the support of the National Film Board of Canada.
