Joshua Glover – Escaped Slave and Etobicoke Pioneer, Presentation by Richard Jordan
February 13 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST
The story of Joshua Glover’s new life in Canada is one of many successful accounts of the Underground Railroad, but was not without hardship and experiences of racism. Glover’s story was featured in multiple abolitionist newspapers across both the United States and Canada. The story of his escape significantly furthered the abolitionist movement and his resilience and determination inspired others to take action to end slavery across North America.
