Mini Comic Teachers' Guide

As part of our Telling the Stories of Race and Sports in Canada project, we also commissioned cartoonist Scott Chantler to write a mini comic about the 1934 Chatham Coloured All-Stars. We also produced an accompanying Teachers' Guide to the comic which you can download here. You can purchase copies of this comic here.

Also available are Scott Chantler's 4 panel cartoon and our Chatham Coloured All-Stars baseball cards . All proceeds from the sale of these items go to support the excellent work of the Chatham-Kent Black Historical Society and Black Mecca Museum.

Teachers and educators can also inquire about getting copies of these comics for free (quantities are limited) for their classes. Quantities are very limited. Please email hardingproject@uwindsor.ca for details.
