Filling in the blanks of Canadian history with a new activity book
"Big Dreamers" is the latest activity book available for kids which highlights Black Canadians, who have overcome adversity and made historical contributions to our province and the rest of the country. It was written by Montreal authors and twin sibblings, Akilah and Omari Newton. Breakaway guest host Peter Tardif speaks with Akilah to find out what motivated them to write the book.
