The Journey to Black Liberation Symposium

Black liberation to me means that we will all be treated as equals, and not having racism anymore.”– Jaaziah, 13

The Journey to Black Liberation Symposium returns to Harbourfront Centre for its second edition! This year, the focus is to have a series of conversation between various Black communities around the world engaging in discussions that are affecting us on a micro as well as macro level. The goal is not to just bear witness to the oppression and injustice, but it is to create a series cross borders network of Black activists, academics and other stakeholders looking at sharing ideas, strategizing, educating each other and community building in efforts achieve Black liberation globally. The goal is touch lives, enrich lives and also change lives in the process.
