It’s another day of virtual history class. Chloe is working with her group on a research project about John Graves Simcoe, but she discovers another historical figure that is far more relevant to learn about, someone who even shares her first name: Chloe Cooley, a young Black woman enslaved in Fort Erie and Queenston, Upper Canada in the late 1700s’.
CAN CHLOE CONVINCE HER TEACHER AND HER PROJECT PARTNERS TO SWITCH TO CHLOE COOLEY’S STORY WEEKS BEFORE THE PROJECT IS DUE?
Meet Chloe explores the challenges Black students face in the education system and the lack of Black curriculum content in the study of Canadian History.
