Dr. Andrea A. Davis, professor in the Department of Humanities at York University, will be a guest speaker at a special event for Black History Month.
In this lecture and Q&A, Dr. Davis considers what happens when we center Black people’s ideas about themselves and offers a model for engaging the histories of Black peoples in Canada that exceeds a simple anti-racism lens.
Dr. Davis established and coordinates the Black Canadian Studies Certificate at York University and is co-editor of the Journal of Canadian Studies. She is an award-winning teacher and author of Horizon, Sea, Sound: Caribbean and African Women’s Cultural Critiques of Nation (2022).
Hosted by President Philip Steenkamp and facilitated by Associate Director Human Rights and EDI Alejandro Campos-Garcia.Register
