Toure – Black To The Future Event Photos
As part of the 2012 TD Black History Celebration, BAND presented Black to the Future - a discussion with famed journalist, author, and cultural commentator, Touré. Hosted by CBC Radio's Metro Morning host, Matt Galloway, the interview dived deeper into themes presented by Touré's book Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness. Many interesting anecdotes about Touré's own personal life were uncovered, with moments of laughter and enlightenment peppered throughout the entire presentation. Much to the delight of the audience, the floor was opened to questions after the close of the discussion. Topics ranged from the Trayvon Martin case, to Barack Obama's presidency, to more intimate questions on race and reality, making for a very engaging and entertaining event.
