Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #29: Samantha Kemp-Jackson, Writer, Multiple Mayhem Mamma

After everything we’ve seen through February with the Tales from the 2.9, I wanted to end on a great note with someone who’s seen a community grow from its beginning, and ’round these parts of the nation, that goes back to ’60...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing Their Stories in a Digital Age — #28: Sandra Dawes, Owner, Embrace Your Destiny

Compiling a project like Tales from the 2.9 isn’t always simple when you’re competing with various schedules, Valentine’s Day plans, and everything that you already should be doing when blogging’s not your full-time gig. That...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #27: J. D. Amin, Founder, BramptonRises#

I’ll admit—being born in Mississauga but spending much of my life in downtown Toronto where I worked, dated and went to school, I’ve likely thought The Big Smoke the centre of the universe at least once. With much of our country’...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #26: Rachel Lambo, Owner, Smthng New Invitation & Stationery

When you think of Black people and the various parts of the world they’re from, I’d bet you Vienna, Austria wouldn’t be high on your list! But that’s exactly where today’s guest for Tales from the 2.9 is originally from,...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #25: Brenda Chuinkam, Blogger, Canneverbeaskinnybish

Separated from my African roots by a number of generations, it was quite the trip when I visited Tanzania in 2012, realizing just how far removed our history had set me from my ancestors. Much has been lost to the systematic destruction of the oral...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing Their Stories in a Digital Age — #24: Ryan Elcock, COO, The Habari Network

It’s funny the connections you make through something like Tales from the 2.9—before I started this project, while I thought I already stood out as a Dad Blogger in a landscape where male voices were usually reserved for sports, cars and te...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #23: Zetta Elliott, PhD, Writer-in-Residence, Weeksville Heritage Center

Sometimes Canadians don’t stay in Canada — we like telling ourselves that we’ve built a utopia and that our country’s one of the best places to live on Earth, but that doesn’t make it perfect — we’ve still plenty o...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #22: Mike Armstrong, Blogger, Daddy Realness

Pretty sure I haven’t stepped foot in Hamilton since dating someone there, but Justin’s told me about its booming blogger scene, including — for example — parent bloggers I’ve yet to meet in the flesh! Mike Armstrong is one of t...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #21: Bridget “Bee” Quammie, Digital Content Creator

After all this time invested in blogging and building my brand, I sometimes foolishly (arrogantly?) think that I’ve met everybody in the Toronto-area blogosphere who I’d vibe with, and I’m very glad that I’m still continually...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #20: Shaun Worrell, Blogger, Milk and Coco

Something I realized after my near-immediate induction into parent blogging just months after the birth of my first child was that the world of parent bloggers was a small one, and that of the Dad Bloggers specifically smaller yet. But though the...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #19: Septembre Anderson, Multimedia Journalist

For what the Black Canadian community lacks in size, it makes up for by being well-connected — there’s always somebody who knows somebody, and this pretty much described how I first virtually crossed paths with Septembre Anderson. I first...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #18: Lamin Martin, Concept Artist, Lamin Illustration and Design

If there’s one man whose art could consistently make me feel like a poser, it’s Lamin Martin. He’s the smooth-spoken well-dressed gentleman I quickly got to know at comic conventions, eschewing the common fare that everybody else...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #17: Tash Jefferies, Healthy Living Expert, TashJefferies.com

With everything that’s kept me busy of late, it feels like a lifetime age where Tash and I first crossed paths, somewhere back in 2012, me a fledgling lifestyle blogger spending more time winning swag and hitting every party I could find, and...

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #16: Ryan Robinson, Father, Business Owner, Up-and-Coming Content Creator

It’d be foolish to talk about the digital landscape for my fellow Black Canadians without keeping an eye firmly fixed upon the future. Ryan Robinson’s someone I got to meet in person fairly recently, and it was refreshing to sit and chat...
