Anthony Stewart in Conversation with Vershawn Young

The Problem of Anti-Racist Discourse in Canada and US with Vershawn Young

In Visitor: My Life in Canada, Anthony Stewart explores the lack of a recognizable Black anti-racist discourse in Canada and why Canada's lack of expression and commitment to Black anti-racism led to him to give up his full professorship at Dalhousie University to move to a small college in the USA. Join Anthony in conversation with Vershawn Young, Professor of Communication Arts and English, University of Waterloo, and author of Your Average Nigga: Performing Race, Literacy, and Masculinity. Anthony will unpack the differences in the discourses of anti-racism in Canada and USA and the differential effects of those discourses both on himself, as a Black man, and on Black peoples in both countries.
