If Racism is the Problem: Anti-Racism is the Antidote
Guest Speaker: Dr. Verna St. Denis, Ph.D.
Special Advisor to the President on Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression and Professor Emerita
University of Saskatchewan/ College of Education
Only with the most egregious instances of racial violence do we hear calls to address racism. Rather than engaging with anti-racist education, institutions often recommend a variation of cross-cultural awareness education, which trivializes the problem of racism. Anti-racist education requires greater emotional, intellectual and institutional investment.Biography
