Black Ottawa Scene (BOS) is celebrating ten years of covering African, Caribbean, and Black people’s stories in Ottawa, the Canadian capital city. We dedicate this special edition to a conversation with the online photo news magazine editor, Godwin Ifedi, who migrated to Canada in the late 60s.
What led to the birth of the Black Ottawa Scene? What are the challenges of operating a volunteer-driven and volunteer-managed photo news outfit? All these and more about his life, awards in Canada, and advice to new immigrants and young people were the crux of our conversation as we celebrate a man full of passion for the Black community in Canada.
