About this Event

Is African Canadian leadership in crisis? Or is it more varied and complicated than is realized? The new book African Canadian Leadership: Continuity, Transition, and Transformation (https://utorontopress.com/ca/african-canadian-leadership-2), goes beyond the crisis frame into critical assessment, diasporic histories, informal practices and political biographies of Black leadership in Canada.

This four-part multi-location series of promotions and conversations invites the editors, book contributors, activists, intellectuals and members of othe Black and broader community into dialogue about African Canadian leadership.
