Town of York Historical Society Presents Natasha Henry on “Emancipation Day in 2021: The History, the Present, & National”
June 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for an evening with author and historian Natasha Henry as she discussed her books on the history of Emancipation Day in Canada!
Along with looking at the history of emancipation in Canada, she will highlight the commemoration of Emancipation Day during the last year in the context of social unrest and the global COVID-19 pandemic. Henry will also discuss the recently passed bill, M-36, that was unanimously passed to have Emancipation Day recognized federally and share what it should mean for Black Canadians.
