The Japanese Garden Society of Salt Spring Island is a garden of unity and reconciliation to oppose racism
Bridges of Love
In this time of escalating racial hostility, in our immediate community and across the world, the work of bringing to light history and historical racism is critically important to making sense of the present. This conversation features two couples who, in addition to having made significant contributions in unearthing history and building bridges to the past, have chosen to do this work in relationship with each other. Evelyn White and Joanne Bealy contributed to making visible the history of the Black community here, while Rumiko Kanesaka and Brian Smallshaw have been involved for many years with projects that unearth Japanese Canadian history. “Bridges of Love” inspires with stories about learning together about the place in which you find yourself, and about how building bridges within intimacy and community enriches connections and understanding at multiple levels.
