George Elliott Clarke and Donald Wright interviewed about the Acadiensis bibliography of Black history in Atlantic Canada

Information Morning, Fredericton’s morning show, interviewed George Elliott Clarke and Donald Wright about the Acadiensis bibliography of Black history in Atlantic Canada. Prepared by Suzanne Morton and Donald Wright, copyedited by Stephen Dutcher, and published in the spring issue, the 54-page bibliography demonstrates an amazing record of research, writing, and scholarship. For his part, George Elliott Clarke talked about the importance of history to his own personal and intellectual journey. As he wrote in the introduction to the bibliography, “I began to see myself, not only as a subject in history, subjected to historical processes, but also as a subject worthy of history, who had a history credible for magic realist mythologizing.” On that note, check out Clarke’s new memoir, Where Beauty Survived: An Africadian Memoir (Knopf, 2021).
