The Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) is proud to take part in Harbourfront Centre’s Kuumba 2019: the longest-running Black History Month celebration in Toronto. On Wednesday, February 20 we’ll be celebrating The Launch of Black Writers Matter, an anthology of African Canadian creative nonfiction. The conversation will include editor Whitney French and contributors Simone Dalton, Scott Fraser, Phillip Dwight Morgan and Angela Wright. The event will be hosted by Nadia L. Hohn.
TIFA has had the pleasure of featuring numerous voices that honour the heritage, traditions and culture of Black communities here in Canada and across the globe. In honour of Black History Month, we’ve selected ten Black authors from the TIFA archives whose work we invite you to read this February, and all year round.
