    Personalities

    We are all aware of Black Canadian titans such as Jean Augustine, Lincoln Alexander and Alvin Curling.

    A Jamaican native, Madeline Edwards is a community advocate, founding member and Vice President of the Congress of Black Women of Mississauga and Area Chapter, and now an inducted member of the Order of Ontario — the province’s highest official honour. 

    Zanana Lorraine Akande is a retired politician, dedicated community servant and loving grandmother.

    A native of Scarborough, Ontario, born to Trinidadian parents, Sterling Scott is a busy comedian and an even busier entrepreneur.

    A huge highlight of the Pan Am Games was Tuesday's historic win for Canada's womens basketball team. 

    Toronto 2015 Pan AM/Parapan AM Games, a first for Ontario, is right around the corner. As expected, most of the attention and buzz is on the athletes who are about to woo us with their showmanship.

    She’s complex, jarring at times, expressive but shy, and happens to be a writer, actor, director, educator, executive director, wife, and a business owner. 

    The fact that we are able to celebrate Black History Month, is due in large part to the efforts of The Honourable Jean Augustine. 

    Joel Ien is a life-long educator who has worked as a teacher, principal and professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. If the surname "Ien" sounds familiar, it’s probably because you've seen Joel's daughter, Marci, on TV. Marci is a co-host on CTV's Canada AM and occasionally an anchor for CTV National News.
