As previously seen at Northstar Cultural Community Centre’s past events, our t-shirts are the perfect way to wear your support for our community. The t-shirts come in a variety of sizes ( M – XXL) and sport our centre’s logo over the left side of the chest for those who want to keep us close to the heart. Our shirts are also a great way to give someone you care about the gift of cultural pride.
The Northstar Cultural Community Centre launched two African Canadian Heritage books Friday May 25th 2007 in a ceremony attended by the Hon. Sandra Pupatello (the then MPP for Windsor West). Pam Fenchak, Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) representative, presented a plaque to the NCCC in recognition of the completion of this heritage project – the result of a grant from the OTF, an agency of the Ministry of Culture.
The books launched were “Heritage Sketch Book- McDougall Street Memories: A Colourful History” and “Community Snapshot Album- End of the Journey: A Brief History of Windsor’s African Canadian Community”.
With the help of the Foundation rant, NCCC was able to identify, prepare and present materials highlighting he historical, social and economic significance of the lives and livelihoods of African Canadians in Windsor’s McDougall Street neighborhood since the late 1800s.
McDougall Street Memories: A Colourful History
This book is dedicated to the residents past and present who will always have McDougall Street memories. The book contains a collection of photographs from the early 1900s, depicting life in Windsor for the Black Community. This can serve as an educational memento but also doubles as a colouring book for those who wish to bring the pages to life themselves.
End of the Journey: A Brief History of Windsor’s African Canadian Community
This book is dedicated to the courageous people of all races who fought for our freedom by helping people to achieve it. This informative compilation of facts and photographs can be enjoyed by heritage and history enthusiasts alike. Experience the story of African Canadian’s then and now on their journey to freedom as told by our very own Heritage team
