Actor and co-founder of The Black Academy, which showcases Black talent in arts and entertainment, speaking from Toronto

Reading new books, Black authors, Black filmmakers. And most importantly, the priority of pushing The Black Academy. I don't know if The Black Academy would have happened so quickly if it wasn't because of this pandemic. We had a lot of time to sit and think and really refine it. So that was a priority and now it's become our number one priority.
