Legacy & Excellence of Black Muslim Communities Workshop
To commemorate Black History Month, the EDI Office is hosting "Legacy & Excellence of Black Muslim Communities".
This workshop will begin with an overview mapping the diverse intersections comprising the Black Muslim experience in Canada, including a discussion of Anti-Black Islamophobia. This overview will be followed with a historical outlook drawing attention to the excellence, resilience, and resistance of Black Muslim communities globally. Attention will be given to the untold stories of Black Muslim change-makers who historically shifted the tides of their time. The workshop will conclude with practical resources and recommendations meant to support continual efforts of recognizing and affirming the wide-spanning contributions of Black Muslims in the making of our contemporary world.
The workshop will be facilitated by Fosia Duale Virtue from the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM).
This workshop is open to all staff, faculty, students and librarians at U of T Scarborough.
Light refreshments will be provided.
