MFL's online Black History Month Event, The Porter

Dear Sisters, Brothers, and Friends,


We are less than a week away from the MFL's online Black History Month Event, The Porter: an online panel discussion on the production of the new CBC & BET+ drama series and the history of North America’s first Black railway union.


The online discussion will happen on Thursday, February 25 at 6:30 pm. 


I have some exciting news to share. We had added two new panelists - two of the show’s consultants, Saje Mathieu and Cecil Foster, will be joining. Both have authored contemporary histories on Black porters and their contributions to Canadian society. There is still time to register at


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.


In Solidarity,


Kevin Rebeck
