Today was a big day for the Etobicoke Historical Society. After years of fundraising and effort, we were thrilled to finally reveal the Joshua Glover memorial. The monument commemorates Joshua Glover, a Black man who helped propel the abolitionist movement after escaping slavery. After a series of artist submissions and a panel vote, Quentin Vercetty was selected. Quentin's piece pays homage to Mr. Glover's transition from slave to free and local influencer citizen within Toronto. Congratulations to Quentin, and thanks to all members of the Etobicoke Historical Society and board for working diligently to make this a reality!
