1851 PROGRAM

1851: Spirit & Voice, is a dramatic revisiting of the North American Convention of Coloured Freemen, a gathering of anti-slavery abolitionists at Toronto’s St Lawrence Hall in 1851. MCs Marie and Anthony, host our present day conference in search of a deeper connection to Black history, their ancestors and the 1851 Convention, when the event is crashed by ghosts of conventions past. Together, they reignite old debates about Black people settling in Canada, 19th century journalism, education, and segregation.
