Being Brown Around the World

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Typically, race has been discussed in the binaries of black and white - but this leaves a spectrum of races, ethnicities and identities in between. "Brown: What Being Brown Means in the World Today (To Everyone)" by Kamal Al-Solaylee examines the experiences of people around the world who identify as brown-skinned. Bringing stories from Filipino domestic workers in Hong Kong to South Asian workers in Qatar, Al-Solaylee joins The Agenda to continue a discussion about what it means to be brown in Canada today.
