Welcome to Harriet Tubman Institute


The Harriet Tubman Institute is committed to the study of the past as it is linked to the present experience of Africans and its Diasporas from multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.

Thus, the Institute’s research program brings to light the diversity of Africans and its Diasporas. It joints to the necessity that we understand the diversity of Blackness and what Blackness means in the Canadian context. It offers York faculty members and students a unique niche of knowledge that exposes the richness and diversity of Africans and people of African descent’s experience in Canada and globally.
