CBC Asks: Black Lives Matter — where do we go from here?

By | June 11, 2020

The murder of George Floyd ignited an overwhelming display of solidarity, public rage and organized protests around the world.

It’s all been in an effort to support each other through the pain, speak up against racial violence and prevent more lives from being lost.

Winnipeggers, too, have lent their voices. On June 5, thousands of people took to the streets to show their support at the Justice 4 Black Lives rally in Winnipeg. 

But what happens when the trauma stops trending?

That’s a key question on the minds of some, like activist and researcher Alexa Joy.  

That’s why Joy will lead a conversation to keep the dialogue going on a special CBC Asks on Thursday at 2:30 p.m CT, where we ask the question “Black Lives Matter: where do we go from here?”

Joy will take on this question, with panellists Zilla Jones, an author and Winnipeg lawyer, and Tina (QueenTite) Opaleke, an author and disability advocate and activist.
