Introduction

Teaching has been an integral part of my career as a professor. I have had the privilege of working with extraordinary people at the undergraduate and graduate levels (MFA, MA and PhD). It is thrilling, humbling and rewarding to have the responsibility to train new generations of cultural workers, thinkers and academics. In the following pages you will be introduced to a range of the dedicated students that I have taught and supervised. Many of them have created new and innovate research in the areas of Black Canadian Studies, Black Diaspora Studies, Race and Representation, and The Visual Culture of Slavery. Their accomplishments speak for themselves.
