Curator Dayo Kefentse presents Generation X Marks the Spot, exploring Black history in Mississauga. This exhibition features an audio documentary that looks back at the late 1980s and reveals how young activists with the Black Action Defense Committee (BADC) sparked change after the shooting involving a Black teen in Mississauga. It also features an interview with Ingrid Pellew-Berkeley, a former Deputy Chief with Peel Regional Police, about how Michael Wade Lawson’s shooting changed policing in the city.

Opening remarks are planned to begin at 6 pm in the Anchorage building. The event is free; however, registration is encouraged and greatly appreciated.

This project, which is on display until December 2024, was funded through the Museums BIPOC Community Curator Program.
