The amazing story of former enslaved African Americans from the State of Maryland and Louisiana who fled in search of freedom to the small town of Oakville, Ontario in Canada. During the mid 1800's, these early Black settlers helped reshape the future of Oakville and made significant contributions to the history of Canada. Finding Freedom is produced in association with CCAH and features its own archived pictures of past president and interview with current president. The CCAH founder was a descendant of the Duncan family, one of the first Black families that settled in Oakville as part of the Underground Railroad. It was an official selection for the Baltimore International Black Film Festival 2023 and won Audience Choice – International Film.
