In Conversation: Desmond Cole


Both Cole’s activism and journalism find vibrant expression in his first book, The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power. Puncturing the bubble of Canadian smugness and naive assumptions of a post-racial nation, Cole chronicles just one year—2017—in the struggle against racism in this country. In conversation with host Jesse Lipscombe. This event is presented by STARfest.
