As historical storytellers, we believe that education leads to conversation, and conversation leads to change. Our new campaign, #WeWillDoBetter shares the stories of marginalized Hall of Famers to raise awareness about systemic racism in Canada. These stories highlight the Hall of Famer’s achievements while increasing awareness about the adversity they have and continue to face. We hope that by creating a platform to share BIPOC Hall of Famers’ stories, we will encourage all Canadians to do better.
The latest #WeWillDoBetter video brings you the story of Hall of Famer, CFL legend and former Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, Norm “Normie” Kwong. The other seven Hall of Famers highlighted in this campaign to-date include Damon Allen, Dr. Phil Edwards, Ferguson “Fergie” Jenkins, Harry Jerome, Herb Carnegie, Michael “Pinball” Clemons and Willie O’Ree.
