abstract
Basodee is a passionate and eye-opening collection of youth poems, essays, and stories exploring what it means to be young, Black and Canadian. This anthology seeks to portray contemporary Canadian-Black relations and is one of the few published collections of Black youth stories in Canada. Topics covered in poems, essays and stories include the Canadian system of (mis)educating Blacks, integrated vs. non-integrated schools, Black identity, and fitting in with a different culture. There are remembrances of 'back home'--about places like Haiti, Somalia, Kenya, Burundi, and Trinidad; experiences of culture shock and solutions for remembering where one came from; stories of family and finding one's own voice; facts and fictions about Black Canadian history.
