An Evening with Tony Miller author of Daddy Hall

Guelph, Ontario

Visual Arts, Heritage — Talks and Discussion

The Guelph Black Heritage Society and OPIRG present an evening with Tony Miller, author of “Daddy Hall.”

“Daddy Hall” is a striking visual saga in linocuts of the life of John 'Daddy' Hall, a man of Mohawk and African-American descent who survived war, capture and slavery to become a pillar of the community in nineteenth-century Owen Sound, Ontario.

Tony Miller is a Canadian painter, sculptor and printmaker. Born and raised in Owen Sound, his experiences facing racism and poverty instilled in him a fascination with his African roots. His art reflects his appreciation of the beauty of many cultures and seeks to explore the effects of past and present on the human race.

Guelph Black Heritage Society

The Guelph BME (British Methodist Episcopal) Church has stood at 83 Essex Street since 1880. The Guelph BME was built by former fugitive slaves who arrived in the area via the Underground Railroad. The Guelph Black Heritage Society (GBHS) was formed after the BME Church was listed for sale in November 2011. The purpose of the GBHS is to preserve the historical significance of the BME Church by creating a cultural, historical and social centre within Guelph and Wellington County.
