Event Details

In her debut memoir They Said This Would Be Fun, award-winning journalist Eternity Martis gives us an honest inside look at the dominant racist and sexist attitudes that plague modern day campus life. As she pursued her undergraduate degree, Martis faced everyday microaggressions and full-blown racist attacks while still trying to navigate the pressures of student life. They Said This Would be Fun is a sober look at the daunting task of how students of colour have to continue to fight for space and recognition within the Canadian education system. Eternity Martis discusses their new book and the experiences that created it. This event is part of TPL's Black History series generously supported by TD Ready Commitment.
