Hogan’s Alley was the unofficial name for Park Lane in Vancouver’s Strathcona neighbourhood. The first Black immigrants arrived in B.C from California in the late 1850s. They settled in Victoria and Salt Spring Island, but then migrated to Vancouver in the early 1900s. Hogan’s Alley was known for restaurants that often doubled as speakeasies. But in the 1960s, the city decided that Hogan’s Alley and parts of Chinatown would be levelled to create a freeway. A portion of the freeway was built, now known as the Georgia Viaduct, but construction was stopped due to resistance from the community, which resulted in the destruction of the western end of Hogan’s Alley. The demolition of homes meant that Black families had to find housing in other parts of the city, which brought an end to Vancouver’s first and last identifiably Black neighbourhood.

Hogan’s Alley was a vibrant place in Vancouver that showcased black culture, music, and food. The Hogan’s Alley Society has been formed in order to educate people more about Black culture and Black history in Vancouver #blackhistorymonth #blacklivesmatter #canadianhistory

Andrew Wiggins, born on February 23rd, 1995 in Thornhill, Ontario, is a professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors in the NBA. In high school, he made a name for himself by being a #1 prospect and insane dunker on the fast break. Last year, Wiggins began his quest to help underprivileged children who cannot afford to participate in organized sports.

Andrew Wiggins has continued his journey with charity work this NBA season as well. For every point his scores, he’ll donate $22 to a charitable organization. Last year, he scored 1,321 points in total and raised about $30,000. Wiggins is a class model for all professional athletes around the world and it is so great he doesn’t just use all his earnings selfishly but helps those in need!

Harlow was bullied for her condition, switching schools frequently, and eventually dropping out of high school. Harlow has modelled for brands like Fendi, Tommy Hilfiger, and Victoria’s Secret.

Harlow has dedicated her life to speaking publicly about vitiligo. To remove the stigma around this condition, Harlow regularly posts videos on social media and has spoken in a TEDx presentation about vitiligo. Today, she continues to speak out about vitiligo, helping people everywhere become more accepting of people with this condition.

Angela James, a hockey player known as ‘the female Wayne Gretzky,’ was born on December 22, 1964 in Toronto, Ontario. James’ skill led her women’s team to four world championships (1990, 1992, 1994, 1997). After retiring, James began refereeing and coaching many female hockey teams. She also founded the Breakaway Adult Hockey School.

Angela James’ undeniably dominant force led her to Toronto’s Hockey Hall of Fame in 2010. She was one of the first females in the hall of fame, the first openly gay player, and the second Black athlete ever to be inducted. She was also one of the first three women to be honoured in the
International Ice Hockey Federation Hall of Fame. Her old ice rink was also renamed in her honour in 2009, where a free hockey program for girls is offered.
