African-Canadians' rich history now online

Black History Museum of Canada an interactive, educational website

This new interactive museum is the result of a 2009 roundtable meeting in Ottawa attended by Canadian black cultural associations to promote and preserve black history in Canada.

Visitors can view photos, exhibits and videos on the site, hear musicians and explore 360-degree treatments of significant monuments and heritage locations as they tour the virtual building.

A sneak peak:

Toronto's St. Lawrence Market prominent in Canadian Black History

In 1851, black leaders from Canada, the U.S. and the Caribbean met in this Toronto building to talk about what could be done to end slavery and help freedom seekers. During a three-day conference called the North American Convention of Colored Freemen, they discussed the American Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 and other issues. That law allowed the U.S. to arrest and imprison escaped slaves and even free African-Americans.

St. Lawrence Hall was rebuilt in 1850 after a fire destroyed the previous building.
