Federation of Ontario Public Libraries

TPL’s Social Media Team, with guidance from the EDGE Committee, have compiled a 23-video playlist of past TPL programs featuring Black writers, social commentators, hip hop artists, historians and others. Excited that the public — and staff! — now have an easy way to revisit these events.
The compilation, entitled Black Voices, includes event videos from our Appel Salon series (e.g. “Black Writers Matter”); eh List conversations (e.g. Before the 6ix); and even an exhibit video made for our TD Gallery (“Beginning of Underground Railroad to Canada”). Other highlights include conversations with authors Esi Edugyan, Lawrence Hill, Colson Whitehead, Saeed Jones and Roxane Gay.
I encourage you all to explore this wonderful and diverse content.
