Canadian, Jamaican, Brazilian, Ghanaian, American. The Black Diaspora is far and wide, but what unites us? What do we all share?
This REAL TALK session explores our shared history and the effects of transatlantic slavery on Black people of North America, South America, the Caribbean, and the Afrikan continent. This session will be facilitated by Kai Thomas, a McGill University student and creator of an audio-documentary investigating the oral tradition of Ananse stories. Kai’s work was produced during his time in Ghana, and touches on a variety of important topics, including the ways in which people on the Afrikan continent perceive the transatlantic slave trade, and the relevance of Ananse stories.
Come join us at DESTA to engage in a stimulating discussion on our shared history and the lessons we can learn from it.
The session will take place from 6-8pm. Refreshments will be served at 5:30pm.
All are welcome!
