A guest speaker and tour guide fluent in english and french—these are the words that might best describe Rito Joseph. His approach—which seeks to gather culture, history, the arts, and music on a single platform—provides a fun way for people to deepen their knowledge of the Afro-descendant community and learn more about its members’ ancestors. During his talks, presentations, workshops and tours, Rito seeks to educate anyone interested in learning about history—especially those who wish to bring about change in their communities.

Une belle visite dans le Vieux-Port pour mon conjoint et moi. Nous avons pu poser toutes les questions qui nous venaient à l’esprit et Rito a été généreux dans ses réponses et ses explications. Rien de comparable dans l’offre pour la découverte de l‘histoire de la communauté noire à Montréal.

Learned so much on this tour through Old Montreal. Rito makes it a point to involve the participants - almost like a call-and-answer in church. Crazy how little is out in the open but good that there are some signs. You just have to know where to look.. Or take this fun, informative tour.

This tour was such a special treat. Rito was an excellent guide that knew all the public and hidden places that tell the story of Black people in the city throughout different neighborhoods. He was also very nice and engaged the group in conversation and stories throughout the tour. I finished the tour knowing a lot more about black history and the history of the city itself.
