Canada’s black train porters were a familiar sight, yet their minority status rendered them politically invisible. It was their struggle against the Dominion that laid the groundwork for the multicultural nation we know today. Drawing on the experiences of these influential individuals, They Call Me George The Untold Story of Black Train Porters and the Birth of Modern Canada demonstrates the power of minority groups in the fight for social justice and shows how a country can change for the better.

This Black History Month, the Museum welcomes Cecil Foster to discuss his experience writing They Call Me George and read excerpts.
