NOT @ The Museum Thursdays

The Niagara Falls History Museum regularly provides programming on Thursdays. Check here for upcoming offerings by our programming team.

Coming Out Stories: Saint Stone

Join Falynn Shaw as she hosts a series of events for LGBTQ+ and straight communities alike. Each night will feature a different special guest to share their personal coming-out story. Come be a part of these much needed conversations in the Niagara Region. All are welcome.

Saint Stone is a punk/grunge/indie group that screams and shouts about what it’s like for some to live and love in this world. Stone for the first brick thrown at the Stonewall Riots, and Saint for the queer and trans people who were told that they were anything less than transcendent. Join them as they share their personal journeys along with an acoustic performance.

Wilma

Join us for a digital screening of the film Wilma, produced and directed by Ayo Adewumi.

Wilma Morrison, who is regarded as the custodian of Black History in Niagara, tells her story and experiences growing up as an Ontario-born Black Canadian, the discrimination she faced based on her colour and sex, and her efforts to preserve Black History in Niagara Falls. She highlights the struggles of saving the local BME Church and having it designated as a National Heritage Site, and also, the history of early Black settlers in Niagara Falls. Wilma talks about her numerous awards including the Order of Ontario, and her hopes for the future as Canada celebrates her 150th anniversary of Confederation.
