Edmonton is home to a large and established Black community. Black people have been here for hundreds of years, but that’s seldom acknowledged and incorporated into our understanding of this place’s history and experience. Members of Edmonton’s Black community are often not reflected in the institutions of this city, or included in conversations around social and political issues. Is This For Real? is a podcast about living as a Black person in Edmonton. Each season will centre around a different facet of Black life in the city.
