Framing African-Descent Identities Through a Human Rights Lens
The historical and contemporary identities of people of African descent in Canada affect their health, social and economic well-being, and development. This first event in this three-part series will explore the effect of oppression based on “race” as it relates to identity, power, language, and well-being. Presenters will expose and discuss research findings on mental health, social, and economic costs of “race-based” oppression. Human rights advocates, policy, and community leaders will give voice to current challenges.
