Jay Jackson


Jay Jackson is the grandson of Albert Jackson, the first black postman in Toronto. He lived on Brunswick Avenue as a child in the 1950s, and discusses relations between Black and Jewish communities, stories of poverty, and experiences at Central Technical High School. His command of Yiddish expressions makes its own point too!
