Printing Workshop: Breaking the Editorial Ice
Shadd Cary: "Breaking the Editorial Ice"
In 2023, we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Mary
Ann Shadd Cary, the first Black woman to publish a newspaper in
North America! In 1854, Mary Ann published The Provincial Freeman
from King Street in Toronto. Visit the Mackenzie House printshop to
print a customized copy of Mary Ann's newspaper, and a bookmark
featuring one of her most famous quotes! Printing workshops are
free. Pre-registration is required.
