Location:  Fairmont Upper Canada Room, 18th Floor

Topic:  An Evolution Through Music



This presentation is offered as an insight into the journey of a young black woman adopted into the white community of Peterborough, Ontario. Liberty was faced with a barrage of racial recriminations. Many thousands of children have faced these challenges.

Liberty triumphed and found her resolve and true freedom through her adopted father’s jazz music collection.  How does a child rise when oppressed within the community?


Liberty chose to be a strident civil rights proponent speaking out from her own unique experiences facing Canadian society with a vigilant reflection.

“An Evolution Through Music” is Liberty’s unique story of finding freedom and a path to her truest sense of self and becoming a Grammy and three time Juno award winner.
