RACISM: Immigrant Perspectives

Posted by GHO Admin on April 28, 2016 in Events

Date: May 11, 2016 @ 7pm
Location: Scotiabank Theatre, Sobey School of Business, Saint Mary's University.

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Public Affairs and The ENRICH Project are pleased to present Part 3 in a four-part series on Racism: White, Black, Indigenous, and Immigrant Perspectives.

How and why do the impacts of history persist? How is racism directly or indirectly manifested in our society?  What are our obligations to address racism? How do we reconcile divisions created by racism? How do we directly or indirectly reinforce racism?  How is racism holding us back?
