Fight for Freedom: Stories of African, Caribbean, and Black Activists, Elders, and Scholars
February 4th, 1-2:30
Workshop and Q&A
Audience: Open

Join the Centre for Student Equity, Diversity and Inclusion as they welcome Ann Marie Beals. Ann Marie will share stories of African, Caribbean, and Black activists, Elders, and scholars and their contributions to fighting for freedom and the creation of an equitable thriving society for all within the nation-state known as canada.

Ann Marie Beals is a Two-Spirit Indigenous-Black L’nuwey – a mixed-blood African Nova Scotian and First Nation Mi’kmaq from the territory of Mi’kma’ki. Ann Marie is a graduate student at Wilfrid Laurier University and a storysharer working on the ProclaimingOurRoots.com project. Stories from this project revolve around Afro-Indigenous identity and relationships with Indigenous and Black communities. Their research explores the health and wellbeing of these communities in looking at the effects of colonial legacies of oppression and violence, and lack of acknowledgement of Indigenous-Black identity in the settler nation-state known as canada. Ann Marie shares Afro-Indigenous voices in uplifting the sacred stories of strength, self-assertion, and consciousness-raising, through the lived experiences and knowledges loudly resonating in Indigenous-Black communities.

This event is open to everyone and is at no cost.
