The Dr. Vibe Show
In this episode we interview author of the book, "Detox", Vidal Chavannes. Vidal talks and shares with us his growing up in Toronto, how "Detox" became a reality and some of his influences. Here is a description of "Detox":"There are books about unrest, tensions that run through a community, and solutions for these conditions. In "Detox", by social observer and activist Vidal Chavannes, readers are pulled into the history, psychology, and culture of the Black community. An edgy and sometimes painful narration, Chavannes shares his frustration and occasional rage at the combination of conditions that foment increased conflict in a community already struggling for acceptance...and survival. Spurred by the tragedy that became known as Bloody Sunday, when four young Black men were gunned down by other young Black men in the City of Toronto, Chavannes considers the causes and implications of this terrible event, and explores the attitudes and behaviours of local educators and police, and all those factions struggling to deal with a diverse, possibly explosive, and potentially dynamic environment."Vidal was born in and is a resident of Greater Toronto. Not only is he a book author but he is an educator, activist and a motivational speaker.
