Module III - Anti-Black Racism

Duration of Module: 2 hours

Acknowledgment: StFX resides on Mi’kma’ki the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people, and it has directly and indirectly benefitted from the historic and current marginalization, erasure, and assimilation of the Mi’kmaq and African Nova Scotian peoples. As a community of teachers, learners and workers, we strive to eliminate oppressive discourse and practices, to critically examine settler colonialism within our pedagogy and our institutional structures, and to be intentionally intersectional in our approaches and analyses.

Overview:

  • Who are the African Nova Scotians historically and today?
  • Second Class Citizenship
  • Environmental Racism
  • The BLAC Report
  • Viola Desmond
  • Africville
