Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #8: Brione Wishart, Filmmaker, TREPFUEL

Just past a week into Tales from the 2.9, and I’ve met so many amazing Black Canadians creating all sorts of content, reminding me that the stuff we consume online isn’t limited to bloggers — in 2016, we have creative souls out there putting together content that’ll suit just about any […]

Tales from the 2.9 — #7- Lian 'Reese' Wright

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #7: Lina “Reese” Wright, Blogger, Reese Speaks

Behind every good blogger’s a good network, and much is the case with Lian “Reese” Wright. When I became a Dad, the parent blogger community almost immediately reached out, connecting me to plenty of other parents sharing their journeys online. One such group linked me with Reese and everything […]

Some years back, a number of friends and I connected over Twitter, forming a group that loved good food, fun times, and cracking wise as often as possible. Marcel Dee is part of that group — Team Trolling — and has been many things over the years: a blogger, […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #5: Amanda Nunes, Blogger, Heartless Girl

While Amanda and I have run through different social circles as bloggers, I’ve found her nothing but kind each time we have crossed paths. Her submission for Tales from the 2.9 is a testament to the fact that one doesn’t need to feel boxed in by their race — […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #4: Chad G. Cranston, Co-Founder, TQ Magazine

Before being introduced by a mutual friend, TQ was one of those names who I thought I’d never cross paths with because it’s a publication that just oozes cool. But co-founder Chad G. Cranston’s submission to Tales from the 2.9 is deeply rooted in something I believe in — leaving behind things […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #3: Heather Greenwood Davis, Writer, GlobetrottingMama.com

While I’ve spent quite some time seeing Heather’s work from afar as she raises her family with a global awareness and appreciation for the diverse world around them, we’ve only crossed paths once — at a Montecito dinner with Steve Carlisle, General Motors Canada’s GM Canada’s President and […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #2: Lisa Simone Richards, Principal, Vitality PR & Communications

I remember first meeting Lisa at a party five years ago, and we’ve all come a long way since! Her submission for Tales from the 2.9 mirrors much of mine, but she touches on a lesson I think every Black Canadian child has heard at some point about life […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — A Curious Case of Self-Identity

I’ve wanted to change the game for a while, but find my mind running in circles when I try to think of something new. I love creating, sure, but at times I find myself creating without soul — creating because I’m “supposed” to, and I hate it. I’m not […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #1: Casey Palmer, Blogger, CaseyPalmer.com

You’d think that living a life as a person of colour, I’d have done a series like this far earlier, but I suppose I got sidetracked from everything else with the blog and never gave it a second thought. But some recent experiences starkly reminded me that yes, I am a Black […]
