Live from the 3.5, 2019: Intro — Being Black in Canada

Black culture is unique—one of the few cultures thrust upon a people and not developed by them. A Jamaican is not a Gambian is not an Australian Aborigine. We’ve got tribes within tribes and languages within languages but somehow lumped together by the colour of our skin. And we’ve made […]

Brown Girl Begins — Telling Stories of Colour Sans Stereotypes

This is more than just a movie review. CaribbeanTales couldn’t have known I was in the middle of deeply searching for a great connection to my roots when they reached out to collaborate. It’s a dope time for content creators who look like us with Jordan Peele’s 2017 horror […]

Live from the 3.5 — February’s Over, But We’re STILL BLACK.

When you’re a one-man operation trying to put out a series for Black History Month, there are some things you might not want to do with your February, like: Hit up a Dad Summit in New Orleans to make dozens of new friends and better understand all the possible […]

Quick Clips with Case P #0002 — Beleaf in Fatherhood and the Case for Positive Black Representation

So a lot happened at the Dad 2.0 Summit. I made new friends. Finally met up with old ones. And on top of that, I got to meet men I idolised without even realising I was doing it, like Beleaf Melanin and his beautiful family, half of which were […]

Live from the 3.5 — Fix Up, Look Sharp — Why Fashion’s So Central to the Black Canadian Experience

If Black people aren’t some of the most fashionable people on the planet, I don’t know who are! Growing up, my mother was always adamant that my brothers and I dressed our best to head out the door. As I liked to say, she’d dress up to get the paper […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — Vol. 2 Wrap-Up

I’ll admit it—with Tales from the 2.9‘s successful completion, I almost felt like resting on my laurels and taking the day off. I mean, this year was easily far bigger than I’d expected, running the media circuit, coordinating with contributors, writing heaps of social shares for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn… it’d be so […]

This year’s been a challenging one for Tales from the 2.9. Last year was bad timing—putting 29 daily posts out right after becoming a Dad for the second time is no simple feat, and we somehow pulled it off. I was eager to build on that success and keep […]

If I can agree on one thing with Rachel Lambo’s Tale from the 2.9, it’s our need to expect more from ourselves as a community. It’s 2017, and there’re so many options to help a people thrive. We can bolster our business with think tanks and workshops. Or pool […]

Having lived in the Toronto area my whole life, I’ve had the benefit of a highly multicultural Canada. Half of Toronto’s made up of visible minorities, with 8.5% of that pie being Black. It’s quite possibly the best place in the world to raise my mixed race family, […]
