What you'll do

Together we will trace the Toronto footsteps of abolitionists Harriet Tubman, Josiah Henson, and others.

Jaqueline was a great tour guide and full of great information. We learned a lot. Our tour was during covid shut downs and a nearby protest so Jaqueline had to modify our route. Between Jaquelines storytelling and the beautifull weather we had a great experience. Thanks Jaqueline!

To say Jacqueline has a deep knowledge of Black history in Canada is an understatement. TAKE THE TOUR! If you want to learn about Black history and how it intersects with life today, Jacqueline’s tour is a great place to start.

This was an awesome tour for tourists or people who don’t know much about Black history in Canada! Not much about Toronto specifically but informative nonetheless ☺️

This tour was excellent in providing local and worldwide historical background about Black history in Toronto. I would highly recommend everyone to take this tour. I live in Toronto and I was able to learn new things about places I pass by regularly. Thanks Jacqueline!

I had such a great time on this walk. Jacqueline has so much knowledge and she really makes the effort to involve you in the experience by asking you some thought provoking questions. She is a great story teller and I would definitely recommend this tour.

This was a great 'event' for our offsite team meeting, not really as a team building exercise (although that certainly did happen) but as something to do together that we would all learn from. Highly recommend reaching out to Jacqueline to see how she can work this into any work you want to do with your teams, or a group of friends. And you will walk!
