Event description

Description

In celebration of Canada 150, this dance/drama by Bravo Niagara and Ballet Creole commemorates the story of Chloe Cooley, an enslaved woman in Upper Canada whose struggles in 1793 served as the catalyst for the passing of the first legislation in the British colonies to restrict the slave trade, setting the stage for the Underground Railroad.
