Kensington Market Historical Society (Virtual): Marcus Garvey and the UNIA Hall in Toronto 1925-1982

May 5, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

An illustrated talk by Dr. Cheryl Thompson, Assistant Professor at X University

For the past several years, 355 College Street was home to Thymeless Bar, a reggae nightspot situated just steps from Kensington Market. What many people forget or don’t know is that for 57 years this building was home to the Universal Negro Improvement (UNIA) Hall. Join us for an exploration of this history, Garvey’s importance to Black discourse in the early twentieth century, and why Toronto’s Black historical spaces and places matter today.
