“On the Road North” travelling and virtual exhibit

(Canscene) –In the 18th century, Black Canadians began a long journey, one composed of many human stories. These narratives encompass groundbreaking laws, acts of personal heroism, as well as years of steady and determined work. On the Road North tells just some of these stirring tales of idealism, courage and leadership.

In collaboration with Canadians from across the country, the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada recommends persons, places and events to be recognized as nationally significant to Canada’s history. This exhibit tells the story of Canada’s Black communities through the lens of these national designations.

This exhibit was produced by the Parks Canada Agency in collaboration with the Multiculturalism Program of the Department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The Toronto tour was organized by the Ontario Black History Society.
