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 Batambuze, an interdisciplinary creative and founder of the #BlindianProject, tells Skedline how his organization is helping South Asian and Black communities to break down barriers. Batambuze is a Ugandan-American who is married to Swetha Batambuze, an Indian woman from the state of Andhra Pradesh. He started the Blindian Project after the 2007 Noida attack on Black African students. The Blindian Project team published their book “When We See Ourselves” in July 2021.
