The City of Saskatoon recognizes March as Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month. The month includes the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (March 21) which is observed annually in commemoration of the Sharpeville Massacre (March 21, 1960) where police officers opened fire on a crowd of Black people who partook in a peaceful demonstration against Apartheid "pass laws".

Becky Sasakamoose Kuffner, Race Relations Coordinator for the City joins us to discuss the importance of this day. She shares many insights including that celebrating cultural diversity is not enough to do meaningful anti-racist work, and can sometimes overshadow it. 

Aired live on CFCR 90.5FM Sunday, March 27
