Exciting news for youth this summer…
The Spotlighting and Promoting African Canadian Experiences (SPACE) Initiative, in the Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on Africa and Its Diasporas at York University invites youth ages 14-18 (or grade 9 to grade 12) to participate in its seventh Student Summer Program, “An Introduction to African Diasporas.”
During fun and creative sessions, students will:
Explore historical and contemporary experiences of African descended persons.
Examine identity making amongst African, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Latin American, Afro-Brazilian, African American, and African Canadian peoples.
Consider how the ideologies of race and gender function in different societies.
Learn about, participate in and make their own African inspired cultural productions.
Experienced educators, facilitators, volunteers and students from York University will deliver all of the sessions. We are certain students will come away from the program having made new friends, probed their imaginations and gained artistic skills. Most importantly, they will leave with greater knowledge about the contributions of African peoples and cultures to the historical development of the world.
The program will run daily, Monday to Friday, for two weeks, from July 4 to July 15, 2016 at York University, from 8:30 am — 3:30 pm. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Registration fees: $40.00

Remembering Muhammad Ali With Ishmael Reed
Saturday June 25, 2016
Distinguished writer ISHMAEL REED
will speak and present his recent book
“The COMPLETE MUHAMMAD ALI”
William Doo Auditorium, New College
University of Toronto
45 Willcocks Ave, Toronto
(Spadina and Willcocks)
Ishmael Reed speaking to Amy Goodman on the Democracy Now Interview ‘The Greatest”:
“Now, now, now, one more thing—Amy, I want to mention this. Ernie Terrell was considered the Mob fighter….my book was published in Canada. And so, some of my passages have a Canadian emphasis. There was a showdown between organized crime, which ran boxing, up (against) the Nation of Islam and the organization called Main Bouts. The showdown happened in Toronto. Ali and Herbert Muhammad were warned that if Ali didn’t take a dive and didn’t, you know, fall to Ernie Terrell, he would wind up at the bottom of Lake Michigan. Now, according to George Chuvalo, whom Ali fought, the man who made the threat was paid a visit by the Nation of Islam. And if you want to know what happened after that, you can read my book.”

S.P.A.C.E. to Cycle campaign, Monday, June 13, 2016 to Sunday, June 19, 2016
Sunday, June 12, 2016 – 7:14 PM
The Toronto Police Service is continuing to focus its efforts on encouraging safe cycling as a practical mode of transportation in our city.
The Service will be launching the S.P.A.C.E. to Cycle campaign, starting on Monday, June 13, 2016. The campaign (Safety, Prevention, Awareness, Courtesy, Education) will conclude on Sunday, June 19, 2016. This one-week campaign is designed to promote awareness and education by reducing the potential for cycling and wheel-sport-related injuries. Building partnerships and mobilizing local communities to respond to local traffic problems will assist in sustaining successful efforts and improve neighbourhood roadway safety.
Education and enforcement of cycling offences are critical to ensuring safe roadways for our communities. All frontline officers will be paying particular attention to those motorists whose actions endanger the lives of cyclists, for example, drivers failing to proceed through turns safely, opening vehicle doors improperly, and driving/parking in designated cycling lanes, all contribute to reduce cycling safety.
Officers will also be paying attention to cyclists who commit offences that endanger all road-users, including the cyclists themselves. Parking Enforcement Officers will assist with this initiative by concentrating on parking offences that may compromise the safety of cyclists.
Traffic Services is dedicated to ensuring the safe and orderly movement of traffic within the City of Toronto.Stay informed with what’s happening at:
