El Jones performing “Toxic Legacies” at Halifax event.

Art Example: 

El Jones, spoken word artist and HRM Poet Laureate, wrote and performed the following poem at an ENRICH Project event:

Toxic Legacies

There’s a connection between the landfills
And our peoples being killed
Between environmental damage and our physical, spiritual and mental damage
Whether from slavery, colonization, colored homes or residential schools
And they think they can apologize and make it all better
Just like they think they can recycle and make it all better… more
