A painting of a woman slave is used by McGill University art historian Charmaine Nelson to tell the history of slavery in Montreal. The 1786 painting by François Malépart de Beaucourt is used to explain how Quebecers imported African slaves and also enslaved First Nations people in the colonial era. This story, told to The Gazette January 31, 2014, marks the start of Black History Month. (Marie-France Coallier)
