Kwame Scott Fraser is a former commissioned military officer, once deployed as a United Nations peacekeeper. He’s now President and CEO of Dundurn Press, one of the largest independent publishers in North America publisher of my upcoming book Bones of Belonging. He’s also one of a very small minority of Black publishers in the industry.
You might wonder what the military and publishing have in common? We get to that in this episode. We also talk about why Scott offered to pick up my book without reading a word, our common struggles with racial discrimination, why language and stories matter and what’s dangerous about publishing someone like Jordan Peterson.
For more on the theme of purpose, read the story “Foreign Object” in my book Bones of Belonging: Finding Wholeness in a White World.
