As we reach the denouement of summer 2016, one thing that I have realized so far this year is that the Black community in the Greater Toronto Area in our multiplicity of hues and politics has different ways of community organizing and claiming space, it has been a beautiful thing to witness and this has giving hope to many from my community. During this summer I have seen the city of Toronto come alive with various forms of community organizing, one of which was the July’s edition of Breaking Bread Brunch which has been our most successful brunch so far this year, I would like to thank our community partners (Vibe 105.5FM, We Speak Research, Young Potential Fathers/ Ujima House) and community members that made July’s discussion really thoughtful, sincere and provocative.
Black Daddies Club gears up for an exciting end of summer and fall 2016 with a series of events and initiatives that we hope to engage the Black community in the Greater Toronto Area.
