This week, Toronto-based creative and Personal Support Worker Lilly Mehari shares her playlist featuring all black artists in hopes that others can enjoy and appreciate the versatility, diversity and influence black people have offered the world.

“It’s a collection of songs that brings me comfort when I’m walking home alone, social distancing from strangers in the hot sun.”

“I curated this playlist in light of the current state of the world; as a way of reminding myself, and others like me, that although there is and has been so much pain, our people have created and will continue to create so much beauty driven by creativity and passion.
