This week I got to chat with Ahmed “Knowmadic” Ali, a poet and spoken word artist in Edmonton about the Somali community here in town.
If you’d like to hear our conversation, check out CBC Radio Active at 4:40pm tomorrow (Wednesday) or the program’s SoundCloud channel!
Here are a few neat links I came across about this fascinating community:
- Somali Canadian Cultural Centre of Edmonton
- Edmonton-based political cartoonist, Amin Amir.
- “Edmonton’s Somali Community Urges Public to Resist Stereotyping”
