The LIVE: #CitylineReal On Race series gives us an opportunity to dive into important conversations. Unfiltered. Unedited. Unflinching. And every Tuesday at 3PM EST for 5 weeks. Cityline host Tracy Moore leads honest discussions about race, privilege, and how to achieve systemic change. Panelists will include historians, academics, activists and young leaders.
This panel discussion focuses on Black activism in Canada – the plight of previous generations and how young activists are pushing for equality and justice today.
This livestream features:
Sandy Hudson (Founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto)
Daniel Afolabi (Student activist)
Sadie Kuehn (Human rights and justice activist)
Robyn Maynard (Author, ‘Policing Black Lives: State violence in Canada from slavery to the present’)
All ad revenue from this video will be donated to Black Lives Matter.
