Stolen From Africa is proud to partner with @takethettc for a few community initiatives this month starting with this Thursdays event! Big up to @blackhurstcc @astrosankofa and everyone associated with the “Talking Moving Legacies” campaign. If we don’t tell our stories they would say we didn’t exist!

Join us for a community gathering this Thursday Feb 9th at Blackhurst ( 777 Bathurst st) 5-6pm featuring the Afrofuturistic artists who are a part of the TTC’s monumental Black History Month campaign developed in partnership with AstroSankofa Arts Initiatives.

TALKING MOVING LEGACIES: Celebrating Black Innovation & Resistance In Ontario is a Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) campaign project presented in partnership with curation and contribution from AstroSankofa Arts Initiatives.

The campaign project features works from 8 of AstroSankofa Arts Initiatives artists who produced spectacular portraits of twelve influential Black contributors to Ontario politics, education,
infrastructure and industry.
