The Porter (CBC, BET+) is set in the Black community of St. Antoine, Montreal in the 1920s. The series follows an ensemble of characters who hustle, dream, cross borders and pursue their ambitions on and off the railways that crossed North America. It’s a gripping story of empowerment and idealism that highlights the moment when railway workers from both Canada and the United States joined forces to create the world’s first Black union. The PSP is honoured to host Marsha Greene and Annmarie Morais on Monday February 28 for a public talk about Authentic Storytelling and being a part of Canada’s only Black-led series, with an all-Black writers’ room.
