I’m very honoured to co-host this event on Jan 27 inside Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The year's theme is "Preserving our Past, Igniting our Future".
I'm thrilled to share #MC duties with the fabulous @Amanda_Parris from the television series CBC Arts: Exhibitionists, The Filmmakers, and From the Vaults and radio host of Marvin's Room on @CBC Music.
Event highlights include:
A keynote by Dr. Afua Cooper, an award-winning author, historian, curator, poet, cultural worker, and recording artist. Her accolades include Poet Laureate for Halifax and the most recent James R. Johnston Chair in Black Canadian Studies at Dalhousie University.
We’ll present #awards to well-deserving honourees from the #blackcommunity in #Canada: Willie O'Ree, Louis March, Ron Fanfair, Sandra Whiting, Uncle Tom’s Cabin and Yolanda McClean.
The unveiling of a new #CanadaPost#stamp honouring #Albert
Jackson, who fled to Canada on the #UndergroundRailroad and overcame #racism to become Toronto’s, and the country’s, first Black letter carrier
A performance by Dan Hill, the Canadian Juno & Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter of the classic megahit, Sometimes When We Touch.
Plus, a three-course meal, shoppers market and a sneak peek of a brand new multimedia series on #blackhistory in #Canada that I’m so proud to be a part of (more on this later).
Proceeds will support the ongoing contributions of the #OBHS. Founded in 1978, the Ontario Black History Society (OBHS) is the organization in Canada is that at the forefront in the celebration of Black history and heritage with a demonstrated record in the study, preservation and promotion of Black history in Ontario. #blackhistory365#blackhistorymonth2019
Day 10 with @vancouverletteringcommunity. A bad habit I’m going to break is keeping my desk (less) messy! Who am I kidding?! Here I outlined the anatomy of my desk: an organized chaos! My desk is always messy, but maybe the #KonMari method might help me once I get going with reading @mariekondo ’s book (recall Day 2 challenge)? It is a beautiful mess though, I’m not going to lie!
I’m curious how you organize your stationery mess/supplies/collection!!! Comment below.
And thank you @msr3m@pehmgraf and @masorianojr for these postcards! 💌
A dark night on a road next to the highway. A truck passes by creating light trails. Photography is all about composition, light and leading lines telling a story within a frame.
Speaking of light it got me thinking about an artist I had the pleasure of meeting where I work. @lights how did you come about the name? Ps: it was a pleasure meeting you at the climbing gym, Rocket was such an amazing climber!!
