“This our second annual BDC Award of Excellence recognizes the many who otherwise would have already been celebrated in a more accessible universe. I believe any Canadian Black designer who has struggled in the face of systemic racism or prejudice has well earned the level of recognition that this Award exemplifies.

“Why wait to be awarded for excellence when we’ve been staring it in the face the whole time”. ~George Sully
