A big congratulations to Desmond Cole on winning the 2020 Toronto Book Prize for his book The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power! To celebrate, check out this interview from #FestofAuthors20 with Grada and Desmond.

Join us for an afternoon with Toronto activist and award-winning journalist and author of The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power, Desmond Cole, with Berlin-based Portuguese interdisciplinary artist and author of Plantation Memories: Episodes of Everyday Racism, Grada Kilomba. The authors will discuss methods for actively engaging in anti-racism in our everyday lives and within the broader scope of the institutions in which we live. Systemic problems of complacency, injustice and violence against the Black community will be unpacked, as demonstrated in their powerful and timely books.
