The Skin We're In
- A Year of Black Resistance and Power
- Written by: Desmond Cole
- Narrated by: Desmond Cole
- Length: 8 hrs and 14 mins
Puncturing the bubble of Canadian smugness and naive assumptions of a post-racial nation, Cole chronicles just one year - 2017 - in the struggle against racism in this country. It was a year that saw calls for tighter borders when black refugees braved frigid temperatures to cross into Manitoba from the States, Indigenous land and water protectors resisting the celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, police across the country rallying around an officer accused of murder, and more.
A must read!

loved this book that clearly laid example after example of canadians and the canadian government continually mistreating their bipoc people. it definitely made me check, acknowledge my white privilege. very informative.
