Institutions of high education have an ethical and legal responsibility to promote and guarantee Black health and wellness. To do so, they however need to develop an effective strategy to root out systemic anti-Black racism. Anti-Black racism is prejudice, attitudes, beliefs, stereotyping or discrimination that is directed at people of African descent and is rooted in their unique history and experience of enslavement and colonization. Anti-Black racism is deeply embedded in Canadian institutions, policies, and practices, to the point that it becomes a part of our systems.
Systemic Anti-Black racism doesn’t only affect Black health and wellness but also Black people’s social, cultural, and political participation and access to opportunities and justice.
This practical and interactive presentation/workshop style will engage participants to critically assess their institution’s readiness for rooting out Anti-Black racism and promoting Black health and wellness.
