Toronto's NOW Magazine has invited real talk about racism in the city's music scene — and several artists have come forward to share their experiences. 

Today, three of them — Ian Kamau, Casey Mecija and Michie Mee — join Shad to discuss their perspectives and why they feel the arts and culture industry is failing musicians of colour.
