Description

Following in the highly personal tradition of essayists such as Dionne Brand and bell hooks, Althea Prince culls thirty years of lived experience into an important new collection, Being Black. A writer and sociologist, Prince tackles the complacency she sees in some manifestations of Black Canadian culture — such as Toronto's popular Caribana festival — as well as in white society's attitudes towards Black culture, as revealed by Prince's involvement with the notorious Writers' Union of Canada-sponsored Writing Thru Race conference.
