Special Issue: Ubuntu Talks

Chelsy Monie, a second year communications major with a minor in art history at Concordia University, created a website called Ubuntu Talks. Initially making its debut as a YouTube channel in March 2016, Ubuntu Talks serves as a platform to create conversations on the different identities that exist within the Black community.

“It was really important to me to create a platform like this,” said Monie. “I feel like a lot of the portrayals of Black people in the media are very stereotypical and not relatable.”
