Black History. Each year in February, the Old Cemeteries Society joins with the BC Black History Awareness Society to mark Black History Month by touring some of the many graves of Victoria’s Black pioneers buried at Ross Bay Cemetery. Escaping increasing discrimination in California, about 600 came here at the invitation of Gov. James Douglas. Douglas is included on the tour because of Black ancestry on his mother’s side. Meet at Oregano's Cafe in Fairfield Plaza before walking over to Ross Bay Cemetery. Cost of the tour is $5 ($2 for members of OCS).
Mon-Thurs 9 AM-noon
