The UTM Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Office in partnership with UTM’s Connections and Conversation brings you Non-Black IPOC Allyship: Unpacking Anti-Black Sentiments in Communities of Colour.
Event Description: Often times when we engage in conversations around racism, it’s viewed from a binary lens – Whites racist towards Blacks; however, anti-Blackness is very pervasive in communities of colour, it shows up as prejudice, colourism and internalized racism. To work towards dismantling racism we have to address anti-Blackness that exists within POC communities, otherwise racism itself will never be eradicated. In this discussion, we will talk about anti-Blackness in communities of colour and discuss ways of standing in solidarity together. *Please note, this event is intended for those who identify as Black, Indigenous & People of Colour (BIPOC).
