Course description

To understand the impact of anti-Black racism and how it manifests in today's society, it is crucial to learn about significant moments and changemakers in Black history, from both the American and Canadian contexts.

This course will equip participants with the foundational knowledge, tools, and resources to identify the prevalence of anti-Black racism, and learn how to actively and intentionally build an anti-racist workplace.
