BLACK LIVES MATTER
New Brunswick Education Project
The Black Lives Matter in New Brunswick Education Project takes place on unseeded and unsurrendered Wolastokiyik territory. It is our aim to work toward a common goal of dismantling systems of oppression that disproportionately affect Indigenous and Black people within the Wabanaki Confederacy.
At UNB BLM Education 2022, we’re ready for something better. Based in San Francisco, our transformative Social Movement mobilizes people from all over to take action and create a meaningful and lasting impact.
Dr. Mary Louise McCarthy-Brandt
This project is dedicated to Dr. Mary Louise McCarthy-Brandt, who continues to inspire us with her crucial academic and community-based work with and for Black communities in New Brunswick.

The New Brunswick Black Lives Matter Education Project was formed in 2020, and seeks to address the erasures of past and present Black histories, communities, and experiences in New Brunswick Social Studies education. This is an evolving collection of K-12 resources that aim to bring Black histories and experiences into New Brunswick classrooms. This action research project was born out of a collaboration between Black Lives Matter-Fredericton and members of UNB’s Faculty of Education, with support from UNB's University Research Fund (2021) Saint Thomas University’s Faculty of Education and Office of Experiential Learning (2020).
