Storyline

On Friday, June 21, 1734 a female slave in New France (nowadays Montréal) was tortured, tried and sentenced to death for burning down the city. Her story has been forgotten in history. Did she set the fire? Or was she the scapegoat for blame? A Joan of Arc in her own right, Marie-Josèphe Angélique was an emblem of resilience against slavery in Canada and her story has revealed the underbelly of Canada's dark secrets. C'est Moi unearths our dark past and exposes the impeding death and demolition of our cultural identity through the voice of one significant figure in Black Canadian history. Written by Anonymous
