About the Event
During this workshop, Dr. Jackman will present current and historical views of people from the African diaspora that lead to anti-Black racism. She will weave the connection between colonization, the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, and what we now call out as White Supremacy. Through personal narratives, videos, and discussions, we will interrogate how anti-Black racism has impacted our views of Black people and strategies that we can use to challenge our implicit biases and assumptions.
- Participants will be able to define anti-Black racism and identify how the history of colonization in Africa and white supremacy has led to global anti-Black racism
- Participants will be able to identify three (3) historical and current events that contribute to anti-black racism
- Participants will examine their internalized anti-Black racism and identify strategies to challenge their biases, assumptions, and roles in perpetuating anti-Black racism
- Participants will develop strategies to leverage their roles and positions as international counseling psychologists to combat anti-Black racism.
