Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — Vol. 2 #3, Chad G. Cranston, Co-founder, TCHAD Quarterly & Social Interactive CA

Those with a keen eye will notice that I scoured through last year’s submissions and invited some of the 2016 contributors back for Tales from the 2.9‘s second edition!

I’ve yet to meet Chad in person — we were brought together by someone whose opinion I trust thoroughly — but after Chad’s submission last year,  I knew I had to have him back on as I brought tougher questions to the table!

In his entry for Tales from the 2.9, Chad approaches a rather prickly subject that only keeps popping up—the need for Black people to better support Black-owned businesses. But it usually ain’t easy—with so few of us in Canada, it means staying true to one’s tenets at the sacrifice of choice. While I don’t have an answer that’ll make everyone happy, at least I know we’re talking about it!

Until tomorrow, everyone!

Tales from the 2.9 — Chad G. CranstonWhat does being Black Canadian mean to you?

It’s 2017 — I want to take on the advancement of our culture as a personal responsibility. I think about our culture and how to advance into the future in a constructive manner. I have been doing research on how Africans contributed to civilised culture, architecture, language, religion, environment, stories and history that are not told in our educational system.
