Brock students, staff and faculty are invited to take part in an upcoming progressive writing session focusing on reflections of anti-Black racism.
The Delving Deeper Deux — Creative Poetry Session aims to build on themes discussed in Delving Deeper: Town Hall on Anti-Black Racism, and will take place online Thursday, March 18 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
Like the Town Hall held in January, the follow-up event will be hosted by Crystal Mark, Community Developer, Anti-Oppression Advocate and Equity Educator, and will allow for the shared expression of experience while creating different pieces of reflective writing.
A collaborative effort from Brock’s Human Rights and Equity Anti-Racism team, Brock Student Justice Centre and the Brock University Students’ Union, the session is designed to bring out expression from vibrant communities and create meaningful art as a method of resistance and recourse to the challenges faced daily at the University. It will centre on breaking isolation, confronting misogynoir, and reclaiming space and actioning community pride through written word.
Though the workshop is open to all of the Brock community, the organizers ask that Black participants are given priority in sharing their reflections and ideas, as the themes are linked to experiences of anti-Black racism at Brock.
