On this episode I speak with Dalton Higgins, an African-Canadian self-proclaimed multi-hyphenate. He is a PR strategist and publicist, author of six books, festival producer and National Magazine Award winning journalist.
Dalton teaches a course called 'Deconstructing Drake, and The Weeknd' as a part of Toronto Metropolitan University’s Professional Music BFA program. Dalton is also the author of the definitive biography of rap icon Drake entitled, 'Far From Over: The Music and Life of Drake', which is part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum collection in the U.S.
Dalton has been a script writer for the Juno Awards ceremony for Canadian music, and a former member of the Racial Equity Advisory Committee for The Canada Council for the Arts. Additionally, Dalton is the host of one of my personal favourite podcasts, ‘Black Tea’, which was created for and by Black Canadians, where they dig into Black culture, news and sports.
In this episode of RHH we discuss topics like Black entrepreneurship, tokenism, challenging the status quo as minorities, and the incredible healing powers of music.
