In 1997 Insomniac Press published Black Like Who?: Writing Black Canada by Rinaldo Walcott. Black Like Who? explores cultural politics inside and beyond Canada, delineating how black communities navigate and creatively attend to unbelonging and diaspora. The book theorizes the work of a range of writers, filmmakers, cultural critics, poets, historical figures, and novelists, while also insisting that these black intellectuals open up alternative ways to imagine blackness. These alternative imaginings, in part, illuminate Walcott’s radical vision: to forge collaborative connections and engender uncomfortable conversations that refuse crude plantocratic democracies…to imagine black life as always already enunciating new forms of humanity.

These conversations will celebrate 20 years of Black Like Who?: Writing Black Canada, while also centralizing Walcott’s fantastic (in the Richard Iton sense) oeuvre of writings on black studies, queer theory, diaspora studies.
