Robert Small of Legacy Enterprises will speak in all three cities. For eighteen years, artist Robert has elevated the possibilities that can be reached as an artist. Robert’s art was part of the first national campaign made to celebrate Black History Month in Canadian history. He has also been on more mainstream and local media than any other African-Canadian artist.

Christopher Wilson will be speaking at the Toronto event. Chris is the first African-Canadian Regional Coordinator hired by the Ontario Region of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, where he has also worked as a union organizer and has overseen the internal Employment Equity Plan. After graduating from Osgoode Law School he worked for OPEIU (now COPE), and SEIU before working for the PSAC. Chris has held many positions in the labour movement, including Visible Minority Representative on the OFL Executive Board, and Member-at-Large on the International Executive Board of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU).
