Blackness and Canadian Identity
- having conversations that count-

"Celebrating Black Excellence" is the theme for the 2nd GECDSB Blackness and Canadian Identity conference to be held Wednesday, May 2nd at St. Clair College (2000 Talbot Rd. W, Windsor).

This is an opportunity for self-identified, racialized secondary school students to explore issues of identity and the challenges systemic barriers create for student achievement.

The goal of the conference is for participating students to see themselves as leaders with a role in solving pressing social issues. They'll discuss changing stereotypes to reduce intolerance and enhance cooperation to benefit everyone.

The conference will begin at approximately 9:00 a.m. in the Student Life Centre. For more information contact Diversity Officer Rachel Olivero @ 519-255-3200 ext. 10213.
