In this episode I speak with Camille Dundas, the Editor-in-Chief of Canada's largest Black online magazine ByBlacks.com and a diversity, equity and inclusion consultant specializing in anti-racism education.
We had an incisive conversation where Camille talks about centering herself in her identity after years of running away from it. She opens up about a traumatizing racist incident that happened to her in broad daylight in Ottawa. She also discusses anti-Black racism in media, and how going to school in the Caribbean taught her about excellence and expecting more from herself.
Real talk: Before we spoke I was a little nervous to be interviewing Camille because she is a GIANT in journalism! But I just took a deep calming breath and then we dug deep into racism in media, the plight of “diversity hires” and even touched on our experiences with wearing weaves!!! Yasss! This episode of the “Race, Health & Happiness” podcast is pure fiya 🔥🔥🔥, check it out!
