Networking & Resources

Among other things, BlackLantic Media produces a weekly talk-show meant to both inform and entertain. We love podcasting, creating content, and everything we do! As a two-person team with no budget, resources, fact-checkers or money we are certainly far from Historians, or the "voice" of everything that encompasses Black Culture in Atlantic Canada. There isn't a week that goes by the we don't ourselves learn more and more about the region of Canada we respresent.

We are slowly working to compile a list of other organizations in Atlantic Canada dedicated to things like History, education, empowerment, opportunities and more. Please take in the resources below, and let us know of who we are missing so we can continue to strengthen the Atlantic Hub.

Help us build our list. Know of an organization, social enterprise, not-for-program, group, page, artist collective, professional group and more working to highlight Black or POC experiences, fill our short form and we will build our networks together. To fill a quick form click here.
