Toronto’s Herb Carnegie has been considered by many to be the greatest hockey player never to play in the National Hockey League. . During the 1940s, Toronto-born Herbert Carnegie emerged as one of the rising stars in professional hockey, but as a black man, NHL teams, including the @mapleleafs , refused to sign him on the basis of race. . The son of Jamaican immigrants, Carnegie grew up playing pond hockey in Willowdale. He eventually played junior A hockey for the Toronto Young Rangers, where legendary Leafs coach claimed that he would sign him “tomorrow” if he weren’t black. . The decision left Carnegie “shattered”, but he did end up playing for a semi-pro team in Quebec...with two other black hockey players and future NHL hall of famer Jean Beliveau. . Carnegie once told @guardian that, “the most devastating thing to me was knowing that players on my team were getting the opportunity whose record wasn’t as good as mine,” said Carnegie. “Which clearly showed discrimination, and racism of the highest order. It was losing faith in humanity you might say.” . In spite of the major setbacks, Carnegie ended up founding Future Aces, a successful hockey school that teaches character building and overcoming unfair treatment. He has since received the Order of Ontario and Order of Canada, has been inducted into 13 sports hall of fames, and is still considered one of the greatest players to “never play in the NHL”. . 📸: @hockey_hall_of_fame . . . . #Toronto #Hockey #Icehockey #racism #Willowdale #History #Torontohistory #Canada #racisminhockey #blackhockey #sports #jamaica #jamaicancanadian #torontosports #sportshistory #hockeyhistory #torontoigers #insta_toronto #museum #museums #myseum

Really proud of my son King who has really stepped up as a young actor. To be able to act & be on the ice playing hockey with his team was awesome. What makes zero sense is the lack of support for young black hockey players in the city of Detroit. The #icedreams program is the ONLY org with an indoor rink that actively supports black youth on the ice. I have written about my boys playing hockey back in the day, and its so important for us to support this effort. We couldn’t shoot in our own rink because the city hasn’t put down the ice yet, and its almost October!! The hockey players in Livonia, Trenton, Dearborn, Taylor, have been skating all year. This must stop!! #butzel or #jackadams needs ice so our hockey players can train & grow & have fun. This is a part of Detroit culture and it deserves our attention. #blackice #film #blackhockey @im_kingmoore #blackkidsplayhockey #detroithockey thank you @geraldmcbride for including my son. 🙏🏽 @jessicacaremoor

✊🏿🏒✊🏾🥅✊🏿 . We’ve talked before about racism in hockey, from racial slurs hurled at players at the arena in Quebec to the omission of Angela James’ contributions to hockey. @evander9kane Evander Kane, currently a left winger with the @nhl @sanjosesharks, issued a response to a racist Instagram comment telling him "stick to basketball." His statement on Twitter read, "I like basketball but my profession is HOCKEY. Thanks." . He also commented . 🔥🔥🔥”This is what I'm talking about, happens all the time just never publicly talked about and just ignored. This exact thing was shouted at me in the penalty box in Denver during game 4. It's racially motivated, IT IS a problem in society and in SPORTS. There is focus on racism in football, basketball and baseball. But in the Hockey world it's easier to ignore, dismiss and forget because let's face the facts hockey is a white sport. But there are black players in the league and other minorities in our sport. Time to notice it, and give it the attention it's deserves. The old way of thinking is done!"🔥🔥🔥 . We’ve also written about racism in hockey, and for those who are new to our community, you can find the link in our bio. And to put any questions to rest: YES, there are Black people in Canada and YES, they do play hockey. . #parentsfordiversity #representationmatters #nhl #hockey #hockeyplayer #nhlhockey #nhlpa #evanderkane #racisminhockey #hockeyisforeveryone #ishockeyreallyforeveryone #blackhockey #blackhockeyplayer #blackhockeyplayers #blackhockeyplayersexist #blackgirlsplayhockey #blackgirlsplayhockey2 #blackgirlsplayhockeytoo #blackgirlshockeyclub #blog #socialjustice #diversity #inclusion #equity #antibias #antiracist #ottawa #uncededalgonquinterritory #canada #turtleisland

Hot off the press! Great News! My mom, Bernice Carnegie is featured on the debut of AfoCentric Magazine! She is the author of the book, The Herbert H Carnegie Story. This is a story about my grandfather a black Canadian hockey player in the 1940’s who did not make the NHL because of the colour of his skin. You can pick up your copy at Indigo as well as online November 8, 2019. Watch for her on TV, she will be interviewed on The Social, November 4, 2019. I am so proud of my mom and all her hard work. #mymom #bernicecarnegie #thesocial #debut #author #interviewed #hockey #blackhockey #afrocentric #theherberthcarnegiestory #ecw

After a couple of years (I have confidence issues, okay???) of goalie camps and on and off classes, I finally played my first game Tuesday night. Not ready for league play, but pickup games are just fine for now. To commemorate the event, Tico presented me with this. 😆😆😆😆 #hockeyisforeveryone #BlackHockey #GoalieGirl @blackgirlhockeyclub
