Hogan's Alley

Hogan's Alley

Cornelia Wyngaarden and Andrea Fatona


Vancouver, BC


Hogan’s Alley (1994) is a video that documents the previously unrecorded history of Vancouver’s Black community between 1930 and the late 1960s. The video examines the lives and identities of Black women (specifically Thelma Gibson, Pearl Brown, and Leah Curtis) and the complexities of class, gender, and sexuality, as articulated in the life and aftermath of a purposely destroyed neighbourhood. With contributions of Andrea Fatona’s research to the Vancouver memorial project, this video serves as a record of Hogan’s Alley and the history of Black life in Vancouver.
