In Canada, National Emancipation Day is coming (August 1, 2021) as Dr. Lynn Jones, an African Nova Scotia leader, educator, community activist and trade unionist, blows the whistle to start the 2021 virtual Toronto Underground Freedom train ride at 10:54 p.m. on July 31st.

Each and everyone is welcome to join the annual Toronto Freedom Train ride as we recognize the challenges and opportunities provided by Canada’s proclaimed Emancipation Day. The ride will be an incredible journey and experience about the Underground Railroad, the route enslaved Africans used to escape American slave plantations, seeking freedom in Canada and ultimately Emancipation Day on August 1st.

The theme of this year’s Freedom Train ride is The Fire Within as we focus on the element of fire and its power to re-kindle, transform and inspire. The train ride will feature a national declaration of Emancipation Day by Senator Wanda Bernard one of the Train Ride’s previous “Conductors” and an advocate for Canada’s national recognition of Emancipation Day.

Also featured this year will be performances by Randell Adjei, the first Poet Laureate of Ontario, award-winning composer Andrew Craig, musicians Eddie Martinez, Amani Woods, Phoenix, the Freedom Train Ride Choir, and various pulsating voices from around the country and across the seas.

Notables confirmed to participate during the Freedom Train Ride include:
1) Toronto Mayor John Tory
2) Chief Diversity and Culture Officer Toronto Transit Commission – Keisha Campbell

Everyone is welcome to join the virtual Underground Freedom Train Ride to celebrate National Emancipation Day via YouTube at https://bit.ly/3721DGl on Thursday, July 31, 2021 at 10:45 p.m. Eastern.
