Where are you really from? Stories on being black in Vancouver

  • Vancouver Public Library - Central 350 West Georgia Street Vancouver, BC, V6B 6B3 Canada (map)

What does it mean to be asked questions like this? Being Black in Vancouver holds something different for many people who grew up/live in this ethnically-diverse city. Join writers Chelene Knight, Juliane Okot Bitek, and Wayde Compton, artist Chantal Gibson, and special guest Randy Clark for a unique mash up of stories on being Black in Vancouver.

Through art, the written word, and our personal stories ... we can create space and understanding in about where we are REALLY from.
