My interest in history is wide indeed and in many ways I was ahead of my time

I was an active historical re-enactor in the 1990s with the Society for Creative Anachronism, actively asserting race by playing Black personae, even though I was often told that I “didn’t have to”. 

In my late 20s/ early 30s, I was a regular on local television in Toronto where featured twice for my work, once on Black history in the Renaissance period and later for my research on Black ballet dancers.

Currently I focus on World War II and the contributions of Black soldiers and volunteers from Canada, the United States, the Caribbean and African nations.
