Town Hall to focus on impact of anti-Black racism on students

The systemic, cultural and social impacts of anti-Black racism on Black-identified Brock students will be the focus of a virtual Black Town Hall on Thursday, Jan. 14.

Black-identified Brock students are invited to join Crystal Mark, Community Developer, Anti-Oppression Advocate and Equity Educator, online from 1 to 3 p.m. for ‘Delving Deeper: Anti-Black Racism Town Hall for Black Students at Brock.’

Mark will facilitate a discussion on how racism has impacted Brock students on and off campus, and how the University can implement progressive changes to improve their experiences.

Mark’s work concentrates on anti-oppression, equity, diversity and inclusion-focused mindsets. For the past 20 years, she has been committed to radical pedagogical practice that acknowledges the harm and continued impact on Indigenous and Black people through the Transatlantic slave trade. 

The event is a joint venture between Brock’s Human Rights and Equity (HRE) Anti-Racism department, Brock Student Justice Centre and Brock University Students’ Union.  

Students who participate in the event will earn co-curricular credit in the Campus-Wide Co-Curriculum. Additionally, students will be entered to win prizes, including AirPods, an iPad and gift cards.

Register for the event, which will be closed captioned, on Eventbrite.
