February is Black History Month. And we take the opportunity to talk with two very special guests - Fabienne Colas is an intricate part of our cultural scene. She talks to us about the challenges and rewards for members of visible minorities in the Arts scene. And Egbert Gaye has published Montreal's Black Community newspaper for more than 20 years. We ask him what issues are close to the community.
Guest(s) : Fabienne Colas, Actress, Director, Producer Egbert Gaye, Editor, Community Contact
