ReThink workshop: Racism in the Classroom
Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Facilitator: Aisha Yorke
This workshop will focus on various experiences of racism in the classroom (i.e., racist remarks, racist rationale for arguments, encounters with a racist professor, racism in reading material, etc). Awkward situations regarding race are also acceptable points of discussion.
The ReThink campaign was created to address these issues as they occur on our campus at the University of Guelph. The reality is that injustice, social inequality, violence, and bullying happen everywhere in the world and Guelph is not immune. Over the years, Guelph has become more and more diverse, and it is our responsibility to make sure that we are respectful of the beliefs, cultures, and experiences of all of our fellow students, peers, and workers.
