BIPOC: Can a term be too inclusive?

Word Bomb

The acronym BIPOC has been around for years-but in the wake of the murder of George Floyd and BLM protests across North America this summer, it's been thrust into the spotlight.

Pippa and Karina break down BIPOC from a uniquely Canadian perspective with help from Paige Galette, a queer Black artist and organizer from Ontario, as well as France Trépanier, an artist and curator of Kanien'kehà:ka and French ancestry and the co-director of the initiative Primary Colours/Couleurs primaires.
