Assumptions people make about us have the power to shape who we are and how we experience this world. Through the story of Oscar Grant, Fruitvale Station, gives us an opportunity to consider how these everyday assumptions lead to grave injustice when they go unchecked.
Ainsworth Morgan, Latoya Rodney (Jane from Finch) and Selwyn Pieters share their stories dealing with, responding to and advocating against racial profiling. They help us connect the world of Oscar Grant to our own, offering inspiration to challenge assumptions, both about us and within us. The panel will be moderated by Chris Leonard, a community development and resiliency worker at the Regent Park Community Health Centre.
