Addressing Anti-Black Racism

In order to effectively address anti-Black racism we need to define it, acknowledge it and be aware of its origins. This workshop traces a Canadian history, delves into understanding of key concepts (white supremacy, oppression, microaggression) and ends with practical, moving-forward, steps including case-study analysis.
