The public is invited to attend a Black History Celebration Walk in Toronto’s east end on Sunday, Feb. 19.
The Lost River Walk, which starts at 2 p.m. at Hubbard Park, near Gerrard Street East and Broadview Avenue, is hosted by the Ontario Black History Society, the West Don Lands Committee, and Toronto Field Naturalists.
It aims to celebrate the accomplishments of African-Canadian community builders like the Blackburn and Hubbard families.
The walk, which will follow a linear route, will proceed along city streets to the Lucie and Thornton Blackburn Conference Centre at Cherry Street and Eastern Avenue in the West Don Lands.
