Pull Quotes Podcast

Black History Month was first celebrated in Canada in 1950, but it wasn’t made official until December of 1995. With February coming to a close, we’ve got 28 days worth of Black History Month content to sift through. This week on Pull Quotes, we ask—what does that coverage look like? We look at what tropes continue to be perpetuated, and talk about the kind of coverage we want to see more of going forward.

Pull Quotes is produced by Lidia Abraha and Michal Stein. Thanks to Kamille Coppin for joining us this week. Thanks to Angela Glover and Lindsay Hanna for technical help. Sonya Fatah is the executive producer of Pull Quotes.
