Black History Month presentation on Owen Sound’s Potter’s Field to be held at BCM&CC

To mark the beginning of Black History Month, the BCM&CC will host a special presentation about the work that led to the recognition of more than 1,200 people buried in unmarked graves in Owen Sound’s Potter’s Field, with guest speakers Dorothy Abbott of the Grey County Black Heritage Society, and Aly Boltman, a local historian.

Titled Erasing Erasure, the talk will focus on those buried in Potter’s Field, many who were fleeing slavery in the US via the Underground Railroad, including members of Dorothy Abbott’s family, and arriving at its northernmost terminus in Owen Sound. Black settlers still faced enormous systemic racism in Canada at this time and many were considered impoverished and required burial in Potter’s Field, which became operational in 1860 and was in use for more than 100 years.

The Potter’s Field project has won five awards, including most recently an Architectural Conservancy Ontario Heritage Award.

Erasing Erasure takes place, Saturday, February 4 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM in the Museum’s Bruce Power Theatre with refreshments to follow. The presentation will be recorded and made available online for later viewing.

Members FREE; General Admission Applies. For registration visit Proudly presented by Judy Rich Barrister & Solicitor.
