Being Black @ McGill

Friday, February 5, 2021 13:00to15:00
Being Black @ McGill
Being Black @McGill is a five-part workshop series designed to create a safe environment where Black students at McGill can discuss their experience of race and how the institution impacts them.
Students will have the opportunity to unpack identity and socialization. They can share their narratives, while learning both about themselves, and the impact racism and discrimination can have on their mental health. Students will discuss the barriers they face and that factors that have either hindered or bolstered their experiences. Finally, they will discuss how they can create spaces of resistance and resilience for themselves.

As this is a workshop series designed to foster community and relies on shared (virtual) space and vulnerability, participants must register for the entire series, from 1-3 PM (EST) on:

Friday, February 5
Friday, February 12
Friday, February 26
