PART TWO: WHERE ARE ALL THE BLACK FACULTY?
MARCH 17, 2016
YORK UNIVERSITY, STUDENT CENTRE ROOM 307
This critical event follows a January 2016 panel sparked by FES Alumni Owen Blakka Ellis’s film Where Are All The Black Faculty completed more than ten years earlier, though not much has changed. #BlackOnCampus events have been taking place across post secondary campuses with students working to support international Black movements to resist anti-Black racism and dubious hiring practices across Canada. Building on the legacy of Black student organizing, work and media creation within York University, this panel brings together academics, local activists, artists and students to examine the intersections of Blackness, social justice and representation in relation to physical, urban, social and geographical environments.
This event features Kamala Kempadoo, Evelyn Amponsah, Muna-Udbi A. Ali and is moderated by Hawa Y. Mire.
