The African Canadian Community of Windsor has a long history of working together to overcome adversity. Together they have helped create a positive force for change and an increased awareness of human rights issues. Many local individuals have also contributed to the efforts of both national and international civil rights movements.

Several organizations have taken up the challenge to improve conditions for African Canadians. An early organization of particular importance was The Central Citizens’ Association lead by it’s first president Dr. H.D. Taylor. The Windsor and District Black Coalition continues to be a vigilant guardian of human rights and they play an important role in cooperation with the Windsor Police Services. (For more information on these organizations please see the Organizations section of this website)

The involvement of individual community members is the key to success in this on-going endeavour. The African Canadian Community Centre of Windsor and Essex County helps to facilitate community activism through forums and events. For further information on how you can participate please contact the A.C.C.C.W.E. at 252-7143 or e-mail northstr@mnsi.net
