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.
Our guest on today’s episode of Black Canada Talking™ is Leonard Paris.
After growing up in rural Nova Scotia, Leonard Albert Paris spent forty-seven years in law enforcement, during which he often had to help people who were victimized, harassed, and treated unfairly because of their race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. This experience led him to take several courses at the University of Toronto on equity issues, diversity, inclusion, and race relations. Now retired, Leonard lives in Mississauga, Ontario, where he enjoys photography and being out in nature. Jim Crow Also Lived here is his first book.
