BHM2018 - Movie Screening & Panel Discussion

You are invited to the Black History Month screening of MICHAËLLE JEAN: A WOMAN OF PURPOSE

A film by Jean-Daniel Lafond

Production: NFB and Inform Action

In 2005, Michaëlle Jean became the Governor General of Canada. A dedicated journalist and citizen of the world, she devoted her mandate to youth, women, Indigenous people, and culture, promoting social change and international diplomacy. In 2010, the tragic earthquake in Haiti took her back to her native land. Michaëlle Jean: A Woman of Purpose is an insider’s look and a thoughtful portrait of the woman and the stateswoman.
