Black in Vancouver: identity hard to build

A growing number of people from Africa are settling in B.C. but because they’re from different places, they’re finding it difficult to find a unified black identity, according to Handel Wright, an educational studies professor at UBC.

“We don’t have black spaces as such. We don’t have black geography, black neighbourhoods…although some are emerging in the suburbs, New West, maybe, or Burnaby,” Wright, an immigrant from Sierra Leone, told CBC On The Coast.
