Join editor Whitney French as she talks to contributors Scott Fraser, Simone Dalton, Angela Wright and Phillip Dwight Morgan about the importance of sharing Black narratives, the origins and personal significance of their respective pieces, and how each of their stories contributes to a nuanced understanding of the Black Canadian experience.
