In February 1969, hundreds of students occupied a computer centre at what is now Montr al's Concordia University to protest the mismanagement of a racism complaint lodged by Caribbean students against their biology professor. When an agreement to end the occupation fell through, riot police were called in, resulting in widespread damage, a mysterious fire, and nearly a hundred arrests. Created and devised by some of Montr al's most prolific artists, Blackout re-examines the events that led to the occupation and protests, asking how race relations have changed in Qu bec and Canada.
