FEVA TV recently attended the 30th annual African Canadian Achievement Awards in Toronto. Founded by Pride magazine publisher Michael Van Cooten, the ACAA celebrates and pays tribute to the contributions made by African-Canadians to their communities and to Canada at large. The 2015 event was a special one, marking 30 years since the creation of the awards in 1985.
The 2015 gala event was co-hosted by CP24’s Patricia Jaggernauth and producer-director Michael Challenger. Among those honoured at this year’s awards show were Toronto police deputy chief Mark Saunders, CBC Radio host Matt Galloway and Canadian hip-hop pioneer and icon, Maestro Fresh West.
Also in attendance at the ACAA gala was Toronto Mayor John Tory, who spoke with FEVA TV about the event and the importance of celebrating achievements in the African-Canadian community.
