Black Canada Talking™ is a live online event that provides Black Canadians opportunity to give their takes and POVs on stories that are of importance to them.
On today’s edition of Black Canada Talking, the guest is Morgan Campbell. Campbell recently joined CBC Sports as their first Senior Contributor after 18 standout years at the Toronto Star. In 2004, he won the National Newspaper Award for Long Shots a serial narrative about a high school basketball team from Scarborough. Later created, hosted and co-produced Sportonomics, a weekly video series examining the business of Sport.
And he spent his last two years at the Star authoring the Sports Prism initiative, a weekly feature covering the intersection of sports, race, business, politics and culture. Morgan is also a TedX lecturer, and a frequent contributor to several CBC platforms, including the extremely popular and sorely-missed Sports Culture Panel on CBC Radio Q.
His work has been featured in the New York Times, the Literary Review of Canada, and the Best Canadian Sports Writing anthology. His first book is due for publication by McClelland & Stewart in the spring of 2022.
