In my first interview with documentarian Mark Holmes for Northumberland 89.7, he introduced the listeners and me to Vanessa Stoby. Vanessa is one of many inspiring young Black activists in Ontario and was instrumental in helping change the name of a school in the city of Vaughan.
In this second interview, we looked to another generation of Black activists Mark is featuring in his documentary, Beyond the March. Mark first met Rosemary Sadlier on a Black History Month project we both worked on when I was at Canoe.ca. As one of the prime movers behind Black History Month in Canada, she was inspiring then–and she’s inspiring today!
