Please join us tomorrow evening (Thursday, the 27th), from 6-8pm, as we learn about the history of racism in the school system and parents/caregivers discuss opportunities to support their children to confront anti-Black racism as a school.

This virtual workshop will provide an overview of education during enslavement, segregation in Canada and issues such as: streaming, low teacher expectations, high push-out rates and disengaging Eurocentric curriculum. Participants will learn about Black educational activism including the work of: hidey school teachers, Lennox Farrel, Marlene Green, Anyika Tafari, Monday Gala, Donna Harrow and others.

How to Talk to Your Kids About Racism

Our first workshop with Freedom School Toronto took place last week and participants have shared that it was tremendously helpful in better understanding the context of racism in Canada.

Tomorrow (Thursday, the 20th, from 6-8PM), we have another workshop coming up — How to Talk to Your Kids About Racism — that will move from theory into practice for sharing tools with children on how to recognise, challenge, and resist anti-Black racism. Facilitators will provide tips and resources for how to present information and analysis to children in a way that is age appropriate, safe, empowering, and engaging.

All are welcome and you do NOT need to have attended the previous workshop to join this one. Please sign up here.
