About your host, Jacqueline
I am a traveler, writer, and Ph.D. student researching the concept of being "outdoors while black." I'm also a certified hike leader for two outdoor clubs.
What we’ll do
Together we will trace the Toronto footsteps of abolitionists Harriet Tubman, Josiah Henson, and others. As we explore homes, churches, and cemeteries that played key roles in the Underground Railroad…
What I’ll provide
A drink at end of walk
Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Bring your camera and water for the walk.
Where we’ll be
We will meet for a brief introduction before visiting key places linked to Toronto's Black history. We'll say goodbye after enjoying drinks at an African heritage cafe.
