Film Launch: Anti-Black Racism in Canadian City Planning by School of Cities, University of Toronto (February 22nd)
The School of Cities presents "Nothing for Us, Without Us," a mini-doc and panel conversation that explores anti-Black racism in Canadian city planning (Little Jamaica in Toronto, Hogan's Alley in Vancouver, and Africville in Nova Scotia).
This powerful mini-documentary sheds light on the persistent issue of anti-Black racism and its impact on urban planning.
This mini-doc offers an intimate glimpse into the realities of exclusionary practices in city planning through interviews, personal stories, and expert analysis.
A panelist discussion will commence afterward, exploring the systemic barriers, discrimination, and resilience that shape the lives of Black individuals and communities in Canada. You can view the complete list of panelists and their bios here.
Don't miss this opportunity to engage with this critical topic and contribute to the ongoing dialogue surrounding anti-Black racism.
Together, let's work towards creating cities that include all of us.
