February is Black History Month and the Sandwich Town section of Windsor is a good place to start in order to understand and take to heart the Black reality in our community. From the Underground Railroad to the dire straits the community is in today, there is a long and important history in Sandwich that needs to be celebrated so that a future vibrancy can exist.

On the program Friday were two Sandwich community Black activists, John Elliot, Executive Director of Sandwich Teen Action Group, and Terrance (TJ) Travis, co-founder of the Bloomfield Free School and Outreach Centre. Both men’s lives are deeply rooted in Sandwich and they are both a living example of the future of Sandwich:
