Foundations: The African Canadian Connection has been developed in partnership with the African Canadian Community Centre of Windsor and Essex County. Nancy Allen, Chair of the Special Projects Committee, has headed up the project for the centre and has donated countless hours and enormous effort to ensure the successful completion of this website. Special thanks to Nancy Allen and the Board of Directors of The African Canadian Community Centre.

Many generous and dedicated members of the community have shared their cherished photographs, memorabilia, and loving recollections of African Canadian history and heritage. It is these contributions which have brought Foundations to life and without which this project would not have been possible. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the following individuals for their participation and for their on-going dedication to the preservation of history and culture in the region.
