This powerful presentation is rooted in scholarship and lived experience, filled with easy-to-understand images and video, peppered with humour, and pedagogically scaffolded to deepen the knowledge and awareness of its participants. This is a great in-depth primer to understanding how white supremacy, anti-Blackness, and anti-Indigeneity operate and function in our society. While the lecture focuses primarily on race, the intersections of other oppressions are addressed.
This presentation is four hours in length, including: approximately 2.5 hours of lecture, two short breaks, and approximately 1 hour for discussion and questions.
