Description

In This Together: Fifteen Stories of Truth and Reconciliation is a collection of fifteen opinion pieces and short anecdotes  from both Indigenous and non-Indigenous contributors from across Canada welcomes readers into a timely conversation. These reflective and personal pieces come from journalists, writers, academics, visual artists, filmmakers, city planners, and lawyers, all of whom share their personal light-bulb moments regarding when and how they grappled with the harsh reality of colonization in Canada, and its harmful legacy. Without flinching, they examine their own experiences and assumptions about race and racial divides in Canada in hopes that the rest of the country will do the same. Featuring a candid conversation between CBC radio host Shelagh Rogers and Chief Justice Sinclair, this book acts as a call for all Canadians to make reconciliation and decolonization a priority, and reminds us that once we know the history, we all have the responsibility and ability to improve our understanding of contemporary Canada. Contributors include Zacharias Kunuk, Emma LaRocque, Antoine Mountain, and Murray Sinclair. Accessible reading about an important social justice issue.
