Robyn Maynard is a writer, scholar and activist whose works are described as “urgent and essential reading.” Her latest book, “Policing Black Lives,” takes readers through the racial injustices that are largely missing from Canadian history textbooks.

The writer stopped by The Social for a nuanced discussion about how those layers of systemic oppression — from slavery to present day — have affected our schools, prisons and beyond.​

She also shares her ultimate reading list from amazing Black Canadian authors whose works highlight those important stories about black culture and history in Canada that everyone should know.
