Unpacking Anti-Black Racism Workshops

Feb. 7, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
Feb. 20, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
Location: Zoom

Anti-Black racism in North America is a legacy of not just colonialism but essentially the transatlantic slave trade and the subsequent mistreatment of Black people following the abolition of slavery. Through this workshop, we hope to facilitate learning about anti-Black racism in North America from a contemporary standpoint. The workshop will provide some insight into some common terms related to anti-Black racism, alongside a review of the different ways anti-Black racism has been manifested. Finally, you will also get the opportunity to learn some practical strategies that can be used to address anti-Black racism in your day-to-day lives. At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

• Define anti-Black racism and related concepts.

• Identify different ways contemporary anti-Black racism has manifested across North America and Canada.

• Explore options to practice allyship and microinterventions to address anti-Black racism.
