Building Black British Columbia with Social Media

6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Central Library


Join us for a discussion on how the Black community in B.C. uses social media to share the continuity of its past and present history by organizing, connecting and celebrating online.

Dr. Handel Kashope Wright, the director of UBC’s Centre for Culture, Identity & Education will chair and moderate this unique event. He is joined by Balqees Jama, a SFU student in Communications and International Studies, the former president with SFUSOCA (SFU Students of Caribbean and African Ancestry), and one of Canada’s Top 100 Black Women to Watch (2022). Debbie Forbes, a phenomenal community organizer, SFU film graduate, public speaker and a moderator of the very popular Facebook group Meanwhile Black in Vancouver will also share her experience.

Drop by and join us for this in-person event by taking a seat in the Montalbano Family Theatre on level 8 of the Central Library.
