On Sunday, September 10th from 6:30 pm-9:00 pm, community organizer and youth advocate, Gwyn Chapman, will host an evening with international political and human rights advocate and renown actor, Danny Glover.

Held at the historic First Baptist Church Toronto, first established by underground fugitive slaves in 1826, and presented in collaboration with the Canadian Black Caucus, this event is part of an ongoing effort to inspire more active political engagement in the Black community.

Glover will speak on the importance of political engagement and how involvement in the political process can change the world. Glover was once a member of the Black Student Union, one of three organizations that staged the longest student walkout in US history. That five-month strike led to the creation of the first Department of Black Studies and the first School of Ethnic Studies in the US. Today, Glover continues to be an advocate for several social and political causes including immigrants rights and union activism.

Now, two years into the United Nations Decade for Recognition of African People, Chapman hopes Glover’s talk will help to encourage people of all ages to become more aware of their political power and influence and how they can exercise it.
