Her book, So You Want To Talk About Race will be published early 2018 with Seal Press.

"Stealing Someone Else’s Voice"

Especially in light of the drama these last few months in Canadian publishing around the topic, Ijeoma will talk about how a shift in the way in which we approach issues of cultural appropriation is needed if we want to move forward in a productive and just way, and focus on some of the fundamental misunderstandings that make cultural appropriation such a thorny issue.
