Join award winning children’s author and storyteller Itah Sadu, as she guides us through a neighborhood’s  memory, and the rich legacy of Black history makers and game changers in Toronto.  Meet ordinary Canadians whose legacy impacted human rights and civil rights locally, nationally, and internationally.
Itah Sadu is a dynamic entrepreneur and community builder who utilizes creativity, leadership and teamwork to build infrastructure and legacy in communities. Her objective is simple and to the point: To work with organizations that engage in programs for youth with the focus on education, pathways and community economic development.
Itah’s youth entrepreneurship program designs have been adapted as models for job placement opportunities, skill development and leaders-in-training programming. One such programme was the Fresh Elements/Fresh Arts initiative designed for youth to develop technical and production skills in the cultural industries.
