Racial profiling, inequity, bias: Award-winning journalist and activist Desmond Cole is one of Canada’s most prominent and influential writers on the experiences of Black Canadians. Joined by the esteemed Barbara Chirinos, founder of VIFF’s Black History Month film series, Cole will share a provocative exploration of his highly-anticipated debut The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power, reporting on a single year in Canada politically and personally: spanning policing practices, education and immigration systems, as well as welfare and entrenched, systemic inequality. Join us for a rousing, potent discussion.
Presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest with support from the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.
