On January 18, the Princess Twin Cinema became the stage for an interactive screening of Stephen King’s 'Carrie,' marking a unique approach to sparking conversations around menstruation and challenging societal taboos. The event was hosted by the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti Racism, the Women’s Centre and Changing the Flow, and was a captivating intersection of horror cinema and societal discourse.

A Pan-African Literary Movement

From September 25, 2023, to November 24, 2023, the UWaterloo’s Sankofa Network for Transformative Community Research (SNTCR), in collaboration with the University of Waterloo Library, embarked on a mission to enrich the Sankara Pan-African Library. The resounding success of our Book Drive was made possible by the generous contributions and collective efforts of our vibrant community. We are thrilled to share that a total of 48 books were donated to this initiative.

The impact of these contributions extends far beyond the pages of a single book. By supporting the Sankara Pan-African Library, we are participating in a movement that strengthens communities and amplifies subaltern voices while pursing the decolonization of knowledge.

This season of the Amplify Podcast is a dedicated platform for University of Waterloo students to openly discuss the challenges they face in navigating academia while holding marginalized identities. This space is one to honour their journeys, discover supports and allow those of us at the margins to see our stories centered.
