The University of King’s College, in partnership with Fernwood Publishing, presents an evening with Nora Loreto in conversation with CBC Mainstreet Nova Scotia’s Jeff Douglas. Nora is an author, podcast host, activist and journalist. Author of multiple books, including Spin Doctors, Take Back the Fight, and From Demonize to Organized. Nora Loreto is on half of the podcast, “Sandy and Nora Talk Politics”, a show that helps Canadians “look at politics, society, the economy and social movements.”
Loreto’s latest release, Spin Doctors, documents each month of the first year of the pandemic and “demonstrates how politicians and uncritical media shaped the popular understanding of these issues and helped to justify the maintenance of a status quo that created the worst ravages of the crisis.”
A night not to be missed. This is a free event. Join us!

This event is taking place on Kijipuktuk in Mi’kma’ki, the unceded, unsurrendered ancestral land of the Mi’kmaq people. We recognize that we are all treaty people and have responsibilities to each other and this land. We also recognize the 400+ years of history of communities of African descent and the 50 African Nova Scotian communities throughout the region today. We commit to actions that will move the work of truth, reconciliation, justice and equity forward.
