The Ontario Black History Society (OBHS) is a non-governmental non-profit organization in Toronto, established in 1978 to preserve and promote the contributions of Black peoples in Ontario, and Canada at large. The Society provides research materials for professional development, as well as audio-video presentations to schools, organizations and libraries to promote the understanding of Black heritage in Ontario
In addition, the Society records and preserves Oral History through taped interviews and contemporary profiles of living members of the community as well as profiles of historical figures who had played instrumental roles in shaping the history of Ontario over the last 200 years.
We have private collections on certain historical and contemporary figures available for research by the public. Please contact the office for further details.
