The Black Daddies Club (BDC) which is a toronto based organization that has been co-creating accessible spaces for Black fathers, Black families and Black communities in the Greater Toronto Area for the past 16th year, is bringing back their annual Summer Hikes for Black and racialized families on Sunday August 27th 2023 at Evergreen Brick works.
In this idea that Blackness is not a monolith; BDC defines Black families in our various entry points as; heterosexual, queer, mixed race, adopted, chosen families, etc. if you identify as a Black or racialized family or an ally, this event is for you.
The purpose of these Summer hikes are for Black and Racialized families as well as allies to gather at a green space in Toronto on a Sunday morning to take part in a group hike and a day filled of various nature and healing modalities focusing on Black families, which will include, Yoga for families, Art and nature play activities for children and circle discussion for Black parents.
This event is free and registration is needed to attend, space will be limited at this event.
