For our final Black History Month special episode, we’re sharing the stories of Black youth in #HamOnt doing amazing things in the arts!
Tune in to meet Eddie Lartey from Hamilton YOU Poets, learn all about the organization, the power of poetry in connecting youth across the city, and hear some poetry performances from Eddie and fellow poet Amani.
Then stay tuned to meet inspirational 12-year-old Ainara Alleyne of Ainara’s Bookshelf, a rapidly-growing Instagram channel focused on reviewing children’s books with diverse representation & interviewing authors.
Thanks again to McMaster Innovation Park for making our #BlackHistoryMonth episodes possible. We’ve absolutely loved sharing Black points of view from across the city and we hope you’ve loved listening.
