Interracial couples and children talk to Skedline about how they are fighting racism, anti-blackness, colourism and stigma every day.
Humber journalism student Cassondra Daley talks about her experience growing up as a Black and Indian person. Daley said it’s tough to fit in and “mixing” races is frowned upon by people. Jonah Batumbze, an interdisciplinary creative and founder of the #BlindianProject, tells Skedline how his organization is helping people from both South Asian and Black communities come together as one community. Batumbze is an Ugandan-American who is married to — as he likes to call her — “an Indian princess.” He started the Blindian Project after the 2007 Noida attack on Black African students. The Blindian Project team will launch a book, “When We See Ourselves”, in March 2021.
