NATIONAL HISTORIC DESIGNATIONS 2011

Kay Livingstone – a founding member of CANEWA and the coordinator of the National Congress of Black Women of Canada.

We pay tribute to a proud history dating back to the Canadian Negro Women's Association (CANEWA) which was founded in 1951 by a small group of Black women in Toronto. In recognition of the importance of cultural and racial pride to Black people, CANEWA's goal was to expand Black consciousness in Canada and beyond. The Calypso Carnival, the brainchild of CANEWA, and a fore-runner to Caribana and the current Caribbean Carnival celebrated in Toronto, was one of the first public celebrations highlighting Black and Caribbean culture.
CANEWA also focused on providing scholarships to young Black students. As early as 1951, a program was implemented to award scholarships. It was Kay Livingstone, a founding member of CANEWA who inspired the other pioneers to participate in the scholarship-awarding venture. Their objective was two-fold: To keep Black students in school and to equip Black people with the tools necessary to pursue equality.

Through the years, CANEWA members hosted and participated in various events that impacted the Black community. Events included: The First Negro History Week (1958), which later grew into Black History Month; the 1962 Martin Luther King's Speech at Holy Blossom Temple, Bathurst Street, Toronto; Coretta Scott King's performance at Massey Hall, Toronto; the 1994 Picketing/ Protesting outside Maple Gardens, Toronto, against Alabama's Governor George Wallace's speech. Wallace was a strong advocate of racial discrimination.
