This Postcard from the Island takes us to the heart of The Bog, where Charlottetown’s Black community lived for many years. The episode features a conversation with Black Cultural Society of PEI President Tamara Steele, an electrifying DJ battle between Jane Blaze and Selecta Chevron, and a breakdance piece by Reequal Smith and Joe Dames.
Every week, we’re delivering a digital ‘Postcard’ that showcases the rich depth of Prince Edward Island’s creative pioneers, local artists, and quintessential locales. “This series is a love letter to the rest of the country saying: we wish you were here, but since you can’t be, here’s a taste of the Island,” glows Director Adam Brazier.
The Black Cultural Society of PEI (BCSPEI) acknowledges that the land on which it operates is the traditional unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq First Nation. BCSPEI respects the history, spirituality, and culture of the Mi’kmaq people who have lived on Epekwitk for over 12,000 years.
