Clement Virgo’s Poor Boy’s Game: Dealing with Anti-black Racism in Canada
Poor Boy’s Game is a very singular film that came out in September 2007. It is co-written by Clement Virgo, a Jamaican-born African Canadian, and Chaz Thorne. Virgo is the author of numerous films including Rude (1995), The Planet of Junior Brown (1997), Love Come Down (2000), and Lie With Me (2005). Unlike these other films, Virgo’s 2007 work tackles a thematic issue that most would rather see unspoken about insofar as it is considered inexistent.
