This symposium will centre on an award-winning play written by Author 2, in which the main character feels she is not Black Enough or White Enough to find her people. By being fully present with the cast of six actors, the audience will see a different perspective from their own, that may resonate with their experiences with race.  Following a performance the audience is invited for a facilitated 'talk back' with the playwright and actors. The drama addresses complex social and cultural issues in a Canadian education, arts, and social context, including biracial identity, multi-racialism, and anti-racist education.

Speakers:
  • Susan Brigham, Mount Saint Vincent University
  • Rita Deverell, Mount Saint Vincent University
