With the generous support of FedDev Ontario, the Essex County Black Historical Research Society has commissioned three new murals near the intersection of Erie and Mercer Streets, in the heart of the McDougall Street Corridor, downtown Windsor’s traditional Black neighbourhood. Artists Jermaine Baylis, Ed Irmen, and DERKZ were selected to commemorate the rich Black history of the area. Join the ECBHRS at 400 Erie Street East (alley between Erie and Brodhead, just east of Mercer) for a special event to celebrate the murals. Meet the artists along with family members of some of the historical figures depicted. Refreshments will be served; please RSVP to

Where: 400 Erie Street East, Windsor
