Abstract

This poem is about being a Black immigrant in the cold winter whiteness of Manitoba where it seems no one really cares about the culture and climate clash the immigrant experiences. In creating the poem, Dr.  Lam drew from the transcript of a focus group of newcomers to Brandon, Manitoba.
