About Stamp

A long-time Toronto resident, Kathleen Livingstone (1918-75) was an activist, humanitarian and popular radio host devoted to the empowerment of Black women. She founded the Canadian Negro Women’s Association in the 1950s and, in 1975, launched the Congress of Black Women of Canada – now a nationwide organization. In 2011, she was named a Person of National Historic Significance by the Government of Canada.

"We are thrilled that people will learn not only about her efforts but also about the kind of person she was: a mother who served her family and a humanitarian who served her people, her city and her country," says her daughter, Rene Livingstone. "She did it generously and she did it well."

This stamp, designed by Winnipeg-based Tétro, evokes the personal strength of Kathleen Livingstone through a historic photograph. "The image selected captures a moment that is both internally reflective and formidable," says designer Paul Tétrault. "The gold metallic glow pays tribute to her visionary influence and trailblazing achievements."
