Scarborough in the 6ix
Hi, I’m Aparita. As many of you know, Scarborough usually gets a bad rap in traditional media and sometimes even in popular culture. Those stories dwell on crime and grime in the community, which was once nicknamed “Scarberia” and “Scarlem.”
So, this is your space to reclaim Scarborough. The conversations I have with community members will drive my storytelling. Help me fill in gaps in news coverage here, so I can surface untold stories beyond stereotypes.
