Program Title: Black Canadians reflect on this week’s unrest
Description: From the aggressive tactics of police at demonstrations in the U.S, to the increasing demand to recognize systemic racism against Black communities and deal with police violence, to the ongoing threat of COVID-19 - it has been a chaotic and politically-charged week in the news.

Today on Front Burner, we take a step back to listen to individuals who are deeply affected by the week’s events. Five Black Canadians share their reflections on worldwide protests following the death of George Floyd, who was killed by police, and the current attention towards issues of racial injustice and police brutality at home and abroad.
