The event on January 23rd in Toronto will showcase archival material as well as oral histories that have been donated to the Ugandan Asian Archive Collection. The event will feature:

• Wayne Jones, Carleton University Librarian
• Patti Harper, Head, Archives and Research Collections
• Michael Molloy who was previously Ambassador of Canada to Jordan. Mr. Molloy was sent by the Canadian Government to Uganda in 1972 to work under the direction of Roger St. Vincent. Mr. Molloy was second in command at the Kampala office of the Canadian Mission during the time of the expulsion.
• Tasneem Jamal, author of Where the Air is Sweet
• Nizar Fakirani, a lawyer based in Toronto whose family was up-rooted from Uganda in 1972
• Shezan Muhammedi, PhD candidate in History, Migration and Ethnic Relations at Western University who is conducting oral histories with Ugandan Asian refugees from across Canada.

By sharing the work being done at Archives and Research Collections with the Ugandan Asian community in the Toronto area, we hope to encourage others to participate in our oral history project and contribute to new acquisition activities.
