Today on The Current:

People in London, Ont., gathered this past weekend to remember the Afzaals, the local Muslim family targeted a year ago in a fatal attack. Matt Galloway talks to London resident Ingy Akkary about the conversations she's had with her children over this past year; and discusses what Canada needs to do to stamp out Islamophobia with Nusaiba Al-Azem, the second vice-chair of the London Muslim Mosque, and Noor Al-Henedy, communications director for the Al Rashid Mosque in Edmonton.

Then, chef Adrian Forte discusses his new cookbook, Yawd: Modern Afro-Caribbean Recipes — and being a role model for young Black chefs.

And some communities are smashing up their pavements to create greener, more environmentally-friendly neighbourhoods. We hear about how these projects — and what the pavement gets replaced with — can make cities more climate resilient.
