The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU) Canadian Chapter is celebrating Black History Month by holding a series of webinars in February and March – commemorating both Black History and the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
Throughout the series, we will look at the work being done to move towards racial and social justice and reconciliation.
We are proud to present the first webinar on February 3, 2021 at 7pm EST tackling the topic of “Black History in Canada”, featuring journalist and anthropologist Emilie Nicolas.
Emilie Nicolas is a columnist with Le Devoir and a frequent media commentator, analyst, public speaker, educator and consultant on public policy, equity, human rights, international cooperation, race and gender issues. She is a regular contributor to CBC’s Power & Politics and Let’s Go as well as CTV’s PowerPlay, and has been published in several journals, magazines and newspapers, both in French and English. Most recently, she won the Quebec’s cultural magazine (SODEP) 2020 Excellence Award for Best Essay, for a piece in Revue Liberté.
This event registration is open to the public, and shall be moderated by our Chapter’s own Yolanda McClean and Isabelle Miller. We are so proud to simulcast this event in English and French, as well as provide ASL.
Please stay tuned in the upcoming week for details regarding the remainder of the webinar series information as well as a notice of Chapter General Membership Meeting (GMM).
