JOURNEY BACK TO JACKSON PARK

By Katarzyna Kochany

Not many people know that slavery existed in Canada, and its legacy continues to affect our lives today.   Journey Back to Jackson Park documents this legacy, along with the massive Emancipation Day celebrations that took place in Windsor, Ontario - a.k.a. The Greatest Freedom Show on Earth. In its heyday, the event drew up to two million people from Canada and the USA, including civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, and musical artists such as The Supremes.
