Building on earlier work and conversations, Global News announced today it will air a primetime edition of Living in Colour. Hosted by Global News Anchor Farah Nasser, Living in Colour: Being Black in Canada airs this Friday, June 12 at 7 p.m. ET on Global. The latest in a long running series, Living in Colour: Being Black in Canada provides a forum for open dialogue around racism in Canada, exploring the ways in which all Canadians, institutions, businesses and government can actively support anti-racism. Guests joining the conversation will be announced later this week.
Living in Colour began airing in Global newscasts and on digital platforms in 2018 as an initiative of Global News producer Alley Wilson and Nasser, who sought to give audiences the perspectives of marginalized populations. Over the past two years, the series has tackled important issues such as racism in hockey, Blackface and the relationship between police and racialized communities.
“I’m proud to work for an organization which understands the importance right now of focusing a show on Black voices to help us understand the everyday reality of being Black in Canada,” said Farah Nasser, Global News Anchor and host of Living in Colour: Being Black in Canada. “This is our time to listen and learn.”
