The UNB Art Centre recognizes Black History Month with Rediscovering the Roots of Black New Brunswickers. This special ongoing research project engages UNB students and members of the black community in bringing to light those Black New Brunswickers who have made a significant contribution to shaping contemporary New Brunswick in their fight for freedom and equality.

The UNB Art Centre wishes to acknowledge the work done by UNB students who have contributed to the research for Rediscovering the Roots of Black New Brunswickers: Carlie Manners (2019-20), Emma Allen (2020-21), Harrison Dressler (2021-22), and Brad Ackerson (2022-23). This project also relies on the knowledge and expertise of Mary McCarthy-Brandt, an educator, advocate and elder in New Brunswick's Black community as well as Jennifer Dow, a researcher and genealogist who is uncovering their stories. The hard work and dedication of these people has allowed the UNB Art Centre to discover and honour the people who have helped to shape contemporary New Brunswick in their fight for freedom and equality.

During Black History Month, banners featuring the portraits of these outstanding individuals are on display on the streets of downtown Fredericton.
