Being Black In Toronto now streaming on CBC Gem
This short documentary briefly analyzes the effects of social media on Canada’s Black youth.
Canada's Black youth have a responsibility to lead the next generation but they're being disillusioned by social media. They’ve made progress but there’s still plenty of work to be done. It’s up to them to hold themselves accountable and use social media to their advantage.
Film Type: Short Documentary
Run Time: 4:34
I made this film to start a conversation around how social media has disillusioned Canada's Black youth. I'm concerned about what's in store for my generation and the next.
I think it's important for the next generation of Black Canadians to understand the power of social media and the responsibility that comes with this technology.
It’s time for our generation to look up from our phones for and begin to re-educate ourselves.
