CBC Introduces New Content on Its Being Black in Canada Website

Canada’s national public broadcaster, CBC, rolled out the expanded Being Black in Canada website—originally launched in 2018—which features “the stories and experiences of Black Canadians, highlighting narratives that matter to Black communities including relevant news pieces, individual successes, and historical content.” It offers profiles, opinion pieces, video and audio materials, and other content from across all areas of CBC. CBC has been producing content under the Being Black in Canada brand since 2013.

“I am excited by the opportunity of this website, which will undoubtedly play an important role in helping us move forward. Being Black in Canada offers a window into the struggles while celebrating the culture and achievements of Black communities,” says Barbara Williams, CBC’s executive VP.  “I have been moved by the many conversations I have been having over these past months. By the incredible openness of our Black employees to share their painful experiences, even when they may have felt they had already shared so many times. By the rawness of the stories, the intensity of the emotion, the sadness that surrounds the frustration. I can only imagine how hard these experiences must have been. Most recently, we heard from Dexter Brown and Imani Walker about their painful experiences while working at CBC. They bravely opened up so that we can learn and do better as an organization. And we will.”
