Join us for the 10th Anniversary of the Thomas D'Arcy McGee Summer School. The theme of this year's event is 'Thomas D’Arcy McGee – The colour of his legacy'

“Black issues, white issues, brown issues, green issues, orange issues, blue issues - they were all part, to a greater or lesser degree, of McGee’s narrative. All remain part of our modern world as we continue to struggle with the aftermath of slavery, of racial conflict, of ethnic conflict and of emigration. To the above palette, we can add the rainbow and issues around gender."
