What we’ll do

Together we will trace the Toronto footsteps of abolitionists Harriet Tubman, Josiah Henson, and others. As we explore schools, churches, and parks that played key roles in the Underground Railroad, we'll discuss why and how many black leaders—including former slaves—migrated to Toronto and built the foundations of a strong black community.
