Mayor Miller will also unveil the seventh poster in a series created by the City of Toronto, titled “Contributions of African Canadians” and present a framed version to the Marcus Garvey Centre. This year’s poster features African Canadians who have made significant contributions to the performance and development of jazz. Many of these musicians will be in attendance.
