Show Notes:

Amanda speaks with Dr. Afua Cooper on the histories of African, Caribbean, and Aboriginal people in Canada. The Canadian education system offers little representation of the history of these populations and what little information is offered erases any perspectives from women. Following the interview is Dr. Cooper's dub poetry piece titled "Negro Cemeteries."

Originally aired February 28, 2009.
