The Construction and Maintenance of Systemic Racism

This session will look at the history of the creation of systemic racism and how it manifests in our society today. The workshop is designed as an informative and educative space, however please note that due to the nature and density of the content, it is less participatory that other sessions, and is meant to compliment historical knowledge and critical analysis of the structures that maintain racism. Participants are best served by attending this session in conjunction with other more hands-on and participatory anti-racism session.
