Centering Blackness in Social Work: From Coping to Afrofuturism

Under the umbrella theme of Centering Blackness in Social Work, we will discuss healing and the multiple forms and ways that healing occurs for Black people outside of what we learn within the confines of social work to imagine a future where Black people flourish and thrive.

Black Access McGill of the McGill University School of Social Work and Black Mental Health Connections Montreal have come together to create this event featuring a range of speakers from institutional and community settings and will be co-moderated by Dr. Alicia Boatswain-Kyte, and Sandra Mouafo.

The event will include a panel discussion, afro-vegan buffet catered by Gytana of Lakou Kai, a guided meditation led by Fimo Mitchell as well as the opportunity to strengthen community ties, and find alternatives to westernized means of healing mental health.

This event will be available online and in-person. For tickets to the event and more information, click here.
