SATURDAY, FEB. 4, 2017 – KUMMBA SOUNDS: TIKI MERCURY CLARKE @ HARBOURFRONT CENTRE

When: Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017

Time: 7:00 – 8:30pm

Where: Miss Lou’s Room, Harbourfront Centre (235 Queens Quay West)

TIKI MERCURY CLARKE

Tiki Mercury-Clarke who history will record as one of the greatest Canadian jazz artists, is a multi-talented Canadian-born pianist, musicologist, vocalist, lyricist, composer and cultural historian. She has become a keeper of Afrikan ancestral wisdom, and, in harmony with tradition, a vessel for the often hard to find, authentic, African North American musical expression called jazz.

“Blackhurst” meets Harbourfront Centre with the performance of musicologist Tiki Mercury-Clarke. Toronto Black Then is a musical storytelling presentation about growing up in Toronto, Black-in-the-day. The presentation is a tribute to the resilience and courage of a (then) small Black community and their spirit of overcoming in an often open and hostile city.

Join us for this presentation. Admission is free and all are welcome.

SATURDAY, FEB. 11, 2017 – DENHAM JOLLY BOOK LAUNCH OF “IN THE BLACK” @ HARBOURFRONT

When: Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017

Time: 7:00 – 9:00pm

Where: Miss Lou’s Room, Harbourfront Centre (235 Queens Quay West)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Denham Jolly arrived from Jamaica to attend university in the mid-1950s and worked as a high school teacher before going into the nursing and retirement-home business. Though he was ultimately successful in his business ventures, Jolly faced both overt and covert discrimination, which led him into social activism. The need for a stronger voice for the Black community fuelled Jolly’s 12-year battle to get a licence for a Black-owned radio station in Toronto. At its launch in 2001, Flow 93.5 became the model for urban music stations across the country, helping to launch the careers of artists like Drake.

Join as we launch, In the Black which traces B. Denham Jolly’s personal and professional struggle for a place in a country where Black Canadians have faced systematic discrimination. Jolly chronicles not only his own journey; he tells the story of a generation of activists who worked to reshape the country into a more open and just society. While celebrating these successes, In the Black also measures the distance Canada still has to travel before we reach our stated ideals of equality.

Admission is free and all are welcome.
