About Desmond Cole: Cole is a radio host, Canadian journalist, activist, author and commentator currently living in Toronto, Ontario. In 2020 he released a book titled, The Skin We're In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power. He has written for numerous publications, including The Walrus, The Tyee, BuzzFeed and was previously a columnist for the Toronto Star.

About the Clissold Lecture: The Clissold Lecture commemorates the life and work of Edward Clissold (1833-1915), one of London's most important early editors and journalists. Edward retired as editor of the London (Ontario) Advertiser after 33 years on staff. A bequest in 1984 from the estate of Clissold's grandson Robert Blount and his wife, Rose, enabled the Graduate School of Journalism to found this annual lecture series to commemorate Clissold's legacy.
