Confronting Anti-Black Racism (July 7, 2020, 7-8:30 PM)

Let’s explore concrete ways that we — individually and collectively — can acknowledge and dismantle our roles in the perpetuation of racism.

On July 7, 2020, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM, Dr. Melanie-Anne Atkins and Dobijoki Emanuela will host a live City Symposium discussion with Colette Chapman, Nyabuoy Gatbel, Leroy Hibbert, Arielle Kayabaga, and Malvin Wright about confronting anti-Black racism. “We will explore how silence, privilege, microaggressions, and unconscious bias continue to enable anti-Black racism in our institutions and communities.” Full bios for all the panelists and facilitators are available on the City Symposium website.

Please register for the event via Eventbrite.
