Celebrate Toronto’s local Black history past and present, during February weekends, through the works of artists and storytellers. Listen to slam poetry and Jamaican Patois-style storytellers on February 17 and 23. Watch a short film from the Regent Park Film Festival. Check out the Story of Us displays and learn about Chloe Cooley, a young black woman enslaved in Fort Erie and Queenston, Upper Canada in the late 1700s whose resistance sparked the beginning of emancipation in Ontario. Don’t leave without trying some hearty foods such as rice and peas with jerk sauce, Somali malawah and spice buns. This event is part of Toronto History Museums’ Black History Month programming.
