“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be antiracist.” – Angela Davis

Anti-Black racism continues to be prevalent in our society and is experienced by Black communities regularly. It is important to uplift and support the Black community, and address anti-Black racism when it arises, as a way to dismantle systemic racism and be a better ally.

In partnership with the BASE and the Humber’s Centre for Human Rights, Equity and Diversity (CHRED), we’ve created an Anti-Black Racism video series for Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber students to further their learning and un-learning of anti-Black racism.

Join our Student Engagement Coordinator Erika, moderator Neil Price, and panellists Nupol Kiazolu, Anthony N. Morgan, Keosha Love, and Dr. Ibram X. Kendi to learn more about anti-Black racism, and how we can support Black communities in this weekly series. You can learn more about our panellists and weekly topics here.

Take a look at our first two episodes below!

Episode 1: What is Anti-Black Racism?

Wondering what anti-Black racism is, and why it differs from other forms of racism? In the first episode of our series, our panellists explain the importance of the term and the different ways in which anti-Black racism is present.

Episode 2: Explaining the Canadian and American Context

Despite Canada’s reputation for being polite, racism still exists in many forms across the country. In the second episode of our series, we discuss the context of anti-Black racism in Canada versus the United States, how they differ, and what they have in common, to provide a deeper understanding of anti-Black racism across North America.
