Description

In They Call Me George: The Untold Story of the Black Train Porters and the Birth of Modern Canada, Cecil Foster examines how the struggle of our country’s pullmen against a racist Dominion laid the groundwork for a multicultural Canada. Wayne Grady’s novel Up from Freedom revolves around the son of a slaveowner who is trying to fight his racist heritage. Join the authors as they share their stories and discuss how far we have come – or haven’t come – from where we began.

Moderated by 2019 gritLIT author Farzana Doctor
