Where: UBC Robson Square Theatre
Join us for a series of events on Black Activism in Education and Community as we showcase examples of how Black communities have responded to racism in Vancouver and in Canada.
Recent and ongoing incidents in Vancouver and Canada illustrate that anti-Black racism is very much a local reality. Black communities that include activists, artists and academics have a long history of working to create new narratives, analyses and immersive experiences that shift this reality.
This event highlights the thinking and efforts of Black communities, and aims to expand the public conversation and prompt non-Black communities to act in effective solidarity to dismantle anti-Black racism.
Our special guest for this event is Shelby McPhee, a recent graduate of Acadia University, who will share stories and comments on how to recognize and address anti-Black racism.
The event is jointly hosted by the
- UBC Black Caucus,
- Centre for Culture, Identity and Education, and
- the Equity & Inclusion Office.
Free, but registration is required. Light dinner and refreshments provided. Music by DJ Denise.
