Historical Review of Racism in Canada (Available Early 2023)

Historical Review of Racism in Canada (Available Fall 2023)

It is essential to learn about the history of racism towards Indigenous, Black, and People of Colour because when we understand and acknowledge the history of these communities, we can honour, respect, and celebrate them. It is also crucial because Canada and the Western University community aim to move forward and disrupt the oppressive systems in place within our institutions and policies. Finally, Western is committed to becoming a strong anti-racist community where all can feel included, validated, heard, and respected, not despite our differences but for our differences.
