Rella Braithwaite, is the Black historian in which the foundation was named after.

Braithwaite was an inspiration, a treasure of wisdom and grace.

 We will continue to honour her by sharing stories from her visionary collection, and by presenting new information and creative narratives about Canadian Black History.
