This NFB film 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. This film screening is part of the public program for the exhibition Inheritance and in recognition of Black History Month. Due to limited capacity in the theatre, registration is required in advance.
