    PROFILES ON BLACK CANADIANS

    Profiles

    Oluwaseun Oyeniran spends his days in the financial world, helping large banks fight fraud with the help of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

    More than half of Toronto identifies as a visible minority, making it one of the most diverse cities in the world. So when Al Ramsay found out he would be the first Black person to receive the Trailblazer Alumni award from the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University, he was floored.

    It’s an otherwise quiet night in the heart of downtown Toronto. The sun has just begun to dip, and the normally bustling streets are virtually empty, save for a few pedestrians and the odd streetcar.

    In one hand, you hold an auxiliary cord. In the other, your smartphone, queued to your “Fire” playlist. The two meet, and the party gets started. Sound familiar?

    I have been a professional dance artist for 15 years, and I’m now the Artistic Director of Holla Jazz – a company that focuses on spreading the guiding principles of jazz dance, and perhaps creating some new ones.

    The first time I saw one of Dawn Grant’s designs, the image never left my mind.

    Neale’s Sweet n Nice ice cream is second to none when it comes to being an all natural, premium ice cream with no artificial ingredients.

    Ryan Singh first stepped into the "entertainment" spotlight in his homeland - Guyana, South America at just 6 years old.

    It’s cold. My mind is forcefully dragging the rest of me through to the next moment. I arrive at Chubby’s Jamaican Restaurant with both trepidation and intrigue. No one wants to incur the wrath of Black Twitter.

    It’s standing room only at the nomination meeting for Leisa Washington.
