ONLINE: EQ204 Anti-Blackness at the Intersections WorkshopExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, August 26, 2020 — 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT

Audience: Students, Faculty & Staff

Description: Situated within the values and frameworks of anti-racism, the session explores the historical foundation of anti-Black racism within Canada and its present day implications on Black communities. Through an intersectional lens, participants will cultivate an understanding of the internal, interpersonal and institutional ramifications of anti-Black racism as it overlaps with other identities and experiences. Unpacking the “meanwhile in Canada” narrative, participants will develop anti-racism strategies to confront the unique challenges of addressing anti-Blackness within a Canadian context. Microaggressions, power-sharing and intergenerational trauma are key components to the case studies and personal narratives.

Online, 2-hour workshop.
