Underground Railroad in Toronto

In Writing (all kinds) on July 28, 2016 at 12:48 PM

Hello community massive,

Make sure that you are on board the Underground Freedom Train Ride that will be leaving Union Station at 11:30pm on July 31st and on its way to Downsview Station to celebrate Emancipation Day on August 1st. It’s a one way trip with no turning back just like the Harriet Tubman’s freedom escapes. See attached for all the details and below video clips from previous rides.

This year’s 4th annual Underground Freedom Train Ride will feature:
· A parallel train ride in Ottawa that will be taking place as we leave Union Station
· Dwayne Morgan, the dynamic and internationally acclaimed spoken word artist
· Emily Wickham, matriarch and longtime member of the African Canadian Heritage Association as the Train Conductor
· The Baro Dununba and Friends African Drumming Ensemble
· The new Tunnel of Transition
· The announcement of a plaque to commemorate the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters
· A big surprise that I am not at liberty to talk about (at this time) stay tuned

It’s a great family and friendly event…..get on board.

Louis
