CIMA recognizes this moment in time as a MOVEMENT and is seizing the opportunity to have difficult, yet critical conversations in an effort to identify the structures and behaviours that perpetuate anti-Black racism within the music entertainment industry.

Initiated, and curated by entertainment community members Ian Andre Espinet & David “Click” Cox, these Black-led discussions will provide the larger industry with a forum to listen and challenge existing ways of thinking, explore unconscious bias, and examine the collective role played in perpetuating anti-Black racism in the music industry. The accumulated knowledge therein will be used to compile a report containing ACTIONABLE suggestions for CHANGE.
