Hosted by the Anti-Racism and Cultural Diversity Office in conjunction with the Office of the Dean of Students,’ DiversiTea committee, join us for an interactive seminar to learn about the significance of Black History Month in Canada. Students and families, faculty and staff welcome. Our presenters will be Kimberley Tull, Manager, Community Development and Engagement at UTSC, as well as Ndija Anderson-Yantha, Lawyer.
Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their current knowledge of Canadian Black History, and develop a greater understanding on the timeline of Black History in Canada. Additional questions which will be explored include: How does a lack of black knowledge affect us and our decisions and assumptions; and how does our lack of Black history influence systems and how do our systems influence our thoughts/perceptions (including media, post-secondary, the workplace).
