A fitting grand finale for Black History Month, the first Black Canadian-made film of 2019 launches into general theatrical release on Thursday, February 28, 2019. Black Canadian filmmaker Frances-Anne Solomon’s internationally acclaimed feature film, HERO, makes its Canadian theatrical premiere at TIFF Bell Lightbox, located at 350 King St. W., Toronto, ON. In celebration of HERO’s achievement, Ghanian superstar Adjetey Anang, and British rising star Eric Kofi Abrefa (Snowden, The Harlots) are confirmed to attend along with Peter Williams (Canada) and Nickolai Salcedo (Trinidad and Tobago).

“Frances-Anne Solomon has done so much to bring crucial stories from the African Diaspora to screen,” said Cameron Bailey, TIFF’s Artistic Director and Co-Head. “Her portrayal of the Ulric Cross story illuminates an important chapter in Caribbean history. We’re honoured to present HERO at TIFF Bell Lightbox, in collaboration with CTFF.”

Filmed in Trinidad, Ghana, the UK and Canada, HERO is the story of Ulric Cross, who in 1941, left his small island to seek his fortune, and became the Royal Air Force’s most decorated West Indian. Then his life took a dramatically different course when he followed the call of history. He joined the independence movements sweeping the world in the 50s and 60s.

Toronto’s Canadian premiere launches screenings across Canada and a cinematic world tour that includes Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe.

HERO features an all-star cast of top international Black actors in powerful roles. Joseph Marcell (Fresh Prince of Belair) plays Trinidadian author CLR James, alongside Fraser James’ (Terminator) as Trinidadian revolutionary George Padmore, while British-Nigerian actor Jimmy Akingbola plays Ghana’s first president Kwame Nkrumah, and Adjetey Anang (Adam’s Apple, Potomanto) plays Congo’s ill-fated first Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba.

Canada’s Peter Williams (Stargate SG1), and Trinidad and Tobago’s Nickolai Salcedo co-lead the extraordinary cast, along with Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Informer), Pippa Nixon (John Carter, Unforgotten), and Valerie Buhagiar (Bad Blood, Murdoch Mysteries).

Several members of the international cast will be attending the premiere and will participate in the post-film Talk Back session. The official after-party location will soon be announced.

HERO captures a transformative moment in Black global history. Securing a general release for the film presents a significant opportunity for us to share our story with a broad and diverse audience. The film is important especially for young Black people to understand on whose broad shoulders we stand, to learn who led big lives and who were heroes,” says Frances-Anne Solomon, director and producer of HERO. “Launching at the prestigious TIFF Bell Lightbox theatre acknowledges the impact of this film on the Canadian theatre ecology and its capacity for exposure beyond the Caribbean and Africa.”

It’s the little program that grew, the roots of The Transitional Year Programme (TYP) at the University of Toronto began in the Black community through two summer programs in 1969 and 1970, and since then, hundreds of graduates have gone onto successful careers. “It’s a place where the students learn to use their voice, develop empathy and unlock their imaginations in order to dream something bigger for themselves,” says TYP Registrar Lauriann Wade, “TYP makes excellence accessible.”

TYP is a full-time, eight month access-to-University program and gives those who do not have the formal qualifications – like a high school diploma – intense hands on preparation for entry into post-secondary education. Applicants come from the targeted Indigenous, African-Canadian and LGBTQ communities where finances, family issues or other circumstances beyond their control hindered their schooling. However, the Ontario Progressive Conservative government’s recent move to eliminate free tuition for low-income students will make access to higher education difficult once again for applicants to TYP.

“The majority of TYP students are from lower income backgrounds with a family income below $50, 000,” explains Lance McCready, Director of TYP. “Having a larger percentage of funding coming from loans will undoubtedly create more debt for our students who have fewer financial resources…it can serve as a deterrent for those from lower income backgrounds trying to access post-secondary education.”

In spite of hurdles like this latest one, TYP has a proven track record of success:

Rocco Achampong – born in Ghana, Rocco came to Canada in 1988 with his parents and four siblings. He entered TYP in 1999 and went on to study history and political science at U of T’s Trinity College. He is now a lawyer who has run for Toronto mayor and city council. Rocco led the legal challenge against Premier Doug Ford’s cutting down of the city’s wards.

Jandell Nicholas – She went from staffing co-ordinator at an employment agency to earning her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts, Geography and Planning. Jandell now works as a teaching assistant in the university’s department of Geography and Planning and is a published author.

Rahel Woldegiorgis – Once given the opportunity, Rahel embraced education. After finishing TYP, she got her Honours BA from the University of Toronto during which time she did two international exchanges – one at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the other at the University of Nairobi. She completed her Masters of Arts (Social Justice and Community Engagement) at Wilfrid Laurier University and is now the Residential Supervisor at Eva’s, a shelter for homeless youth.

Recently, Lauriann Wade, TYP Registrar and graduate of TYP, was on our show talking about the TYP.

During our conversation, Ms. Wade talked about:

– Some of her background and how she got involved in the Transisitonal Year Programme (TYP) including what was preventing her from going to university, how she found out about TYP, the history of the program, her first day in the programme and her graduation day, the programme itself including the application process
– Why do some students drop out of the programme
– What does her role comprise of
– How have students changed over the years
– The drop in the number of Black and Indigenous students applying for the programme
– How has the programme changed since she was in the programme
– How people find out about TYP

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.
