Celebrating diverse voices & stories from across Canada, the TD Black History Month Series Launch kicked off what is going to be a month-long series of events across Toronto.
Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and pioneering hip-hop legend Maestro Fresh Wes hosted the event, alongside appearances from multi-award-winning top Canadian talent Jully Black, Tonya Williams, Exco Levi and more.
In addition, filmmaker and director Nathan Burland, internationally award-winning Canadian actress and Reelworld Film Festival founder, executive and artistic director Tonya Williams was on-hand for the debut of short-film, ROYAL.
There was also a moderated panel discussing the importance of amplifying diverse voices and stories within the community.
