Résumé
This dissertation examines the working lives of black nurses in Ontario between 1945 and 1980. This dissertation engages with recent scholarship in the fields of women and work, anti-racist feminism, Canadian immigration history and black diasporas to analyse how black nurses were located within the post-World War II health care system. Using archival resources gleaned from the oral interviews conducted with black nurses, the research uses race, class and gender as critical categories to explore the experiences of Canadian born-black and Caribbean nurses in the post-war era. By using the interlocking systems of race, class and gender, this dissertation focuses on questions of black nurses identity, their experiences at the workplace, their encounters with racism, and their efforts to resist discrimination and subordination. How immigration officials and nursing administrators responded to the immigration of black nurses educated in Britain and the Caribbean is also addressed. I argue that the socially constructed categories of race, gender, and class shaped the nurses subjective sense of themselves as professionals, workers, mothers, wives, citizens, and immigrant women. This dissertation also explores the ways that class, gender, race constructed common experiences black nurses, but also had the potential to fragment those commonalities.
