Black History Month - Black Existentialism and the Politics of Identity
Fourth annual Black History Month event titled:Black Existentialism and the Politics of Identity
February is Black History Month (BHM)—a time when we as Canadians celebrate and honour the achievements and contributions of Black Canadians, both past and present. It is an opportunity to raise awareness about the challenges confronting peoples of African descent and of their contributions to the human experience. Here at Ontario Tech University we believe that BHM is equally about scholarship, cultural pedagogical politics, and celebration.
The President’s Equity Taskforce will be hosting its annual BHM public lecture series on February 27, 2020 at the Regent Theatre from 6 to 9 PM. Our speakers will be Dr. Rozena Maart, Director for the Centre for Critical Research on Race and Identity, University of Kwa-Zulu Natal and Dr. Lewis Gordon, Professor Africana Philosophy, University of Connecticut.
