The lunch & learn workshop series—Antiracist Images: Screening and Discussing Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Decolonization (EDID) Values in Canadian Workplaces—is offered to UBC Faculty of Education CUPE and M&P staff as part of our commitment to enhance awareness on race issues.
This first lunch & learn features a screening and discussion of Sandamini Rankaduwa’s film Ice Breakers (2019), which depicts Josh Crook’s struggles as a Black hockey player in Canada. This screening invites audiences to think beyond their own racialized experiences, challenge normalized practices at the workplace, and continue these conversations with their colleagues.
To begin reflecting on the invisible history of Black civil rights in Canada, we invite you to watch another short film, Roger McTair’s film Journey to Justice (2000), prior to the event: nfb.ca/film/journey_to_justice.
