Coming soon: Touré in Toronto this Thursday for Black to the Future

Black to the Future: Identity Politics in the Modern Americas  Thursday, March 29, 2012 @ 6pm Arts and Letters Club, 14 Elm Street, Toronto

Inspired by African-American writer Touré’s recent book, Who’s Afraid of Post- Blackness, Black to the Future is a provocative discussion about what it means to be black today.

Matt Galloway, host of Metro Morning on CBC Radio One 99.1, will lead writer and pop culture enthusiast Touré in conversation exploring issues of modern black identity. What does it mean to identify as black in America today and how does that concept relate to being black in Canada? What do the issues of race and “Blackness” mean within Canadian borders?

The evening begins with a cocktail reception at 6pm. The conversation ends with an audience Q&A and book signing.  Tickets are $20.00 in advance – available online through, or $25.00 at the door.

Black to the Future is presented by Black Artists’ Networks in Dialogue and funded by TD Bank Group.

Black Artists’ Networks in Dialogue (BAND) is an organization dedicated to supporting, documenting and showcasing the artistic and cultural contributions of Black Artists in Canada and abroad. For more information about BAND visit  MEDIA CONTACT:  Alison Taylor (647) 701-4323
