Stand Up! Canadian Blackness. Past. Present. Future
This multi-partner collaboration at the University of Toronto is seeking to engage students, staff, faculty and the broader community in dialogue and action planning with respect to the historical and present experiences of Blackness in the Canadian context, with a particular focus on experiences in the post-secondary environments.
The goal of the event is to enhance knowledge of these histories, to reflect on these and current experiences, and to consider how to shape systemic change now and for the future. Through information sharing and moderated discussion, this event builds on previous work that will explore issues and opportunities to address anti-Black racism in post-secondary environments, and how action can be taken by the communities connected to these environments to affect change.
George Elliott Clarke will deliver the keynote address, followed by a moderated conversation between George Elliot Clarke and Dr. Onye Nnorom, facilitated by Nana Frimpong.
