Discussion: Anti-Black Racism in Canada (19 July 2020, 2pm EDT)

Racism in Canada has many different faces. To improve equity and justice for all in Canada, we first must understand racism from differing perspectives, and find safe spaces to inquire and understand. That’s why CFIC has teamed up with Humanist Canada, Dundurn Press, and Black Artists Network in Dialogue to bring you a discussion on Anti-Black Racism in Canada.

At this event, Scott Fraser (President and Publisher at Dundurn Press) will interview Dr. Ajamu Nangwaya (Professor, University of the West Indies), about systemic racism in Canada: its origins, the statistics, and the first things we must do to address this issue. Perhaps, most importantly, Scott and Ajamu will answer the question “Can Canada survive as a multi-racial democracy without addressing its racism problem.”

A one-hour, investigative interview will be followed by 30 minutes of Q&A from attendees.
