Montreal Steppers present The Route to Canada– a live presentation of the art form of step, spoken word and song highlighting the resilience, creativity, influence of our ancestors in the African Diaspora.

Rooted in the African traditions of storytelling and call and response, the showcase focuses on Black Canadian History. A combination of powerful and energetic stomps, claps and a vocal ensemble to illustrate the long journey of Black folks to Canada through Slavery, the Underground Railroad and Migration. It’s a celebration of the journeys, stories and sacrifices of ancestors who have paved the way for us all.
