Black-led Space for Everyone.

Dear world:

When the narrative is written it will be written by the lion and not the hunter

It will be said that you acted on the recommendations in the millions of reports on Black people that have been recommended a million times.

It will be said that you the people, people on many front lines, provided funds to deepen and water our roots. 

It will be said that you sought new ways to engage in an equitable new world post COVID-19.

It will be said that you added air so others can breathe. 

It will be said that your donation of funds to ADBCC — The People’s Residence builds on the opportunity to co-create legacy and history together.

This is A Different Booklist Cultural Centre — The People's Residence

Out of a bookstore was born a cultural centre. See how our story has evolved as we continue to plant our roots in Toronto. 

Check out the 2020 Hotdocs selection, There’s No Place Like This Place Anyplace directed by Lulu Wei, which tells the story of the redevelopment of our neighbourhood, the Annex community at Bathurst and Bloor in Toronto.
