Resilience: Stories of Single Black Mothers

This Saturday the long-anticipated documentary “Resilience” is being played at Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Ave. near St. George subway station) at 7pm. “Resilience” explores the lives of three single black mothers in Canada providing an unstigmatized account of the challenges women face everyday. The event is being held to benefit Literature for Life, the founding organization behind Women Wordz.

After the screening there will be a panel discussion with director Lana Lovell, author and social advocate Dalton Higgins, social worker and participant Nancy Blades, and Wendy Komiotis, executive director of violence-prevention organization METRAC.
