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.

Join the residents of Tapestry at Village Gate West as we come to understand the rich history within our city. Please RSVP to LHolland@DiscoverTapestry.com to join this fascinating presentation.
