Alice King, 4 years old, from the Black Settlers of Alberta & Saskatchewan Historical Society (BSAS) website: “BSAS will archive and document material to educate, promote and officially recognize the historic role Black Settlers played in pioneering the lands that would become Alberta and Saskatchewan. For more than 100 years, Blacks have lived, worked and contributed greatly to the prairie provinces now known as Alberta and Saskatchewan…BSAS was founded by four women, all descendants of Black slaves and early Canadian pioneers.”
