Panel Presentation on White Supremacy and Systemic Racism

Wednesday, November 01, 2017
12:30 to 13:45
Panel Presentation on White Supremacy and Systemic Racism: Wed., November 1, 12:30 – 1:45, Choir Room (A-250)
White supremacy and systemic racism are terms that we hear a lot in the media lately in relation to events such as the Quebec City Mosque shooting and the violence in Charlotteville. We use the terms with good reason: these two phenomena permeate our social structure and all our institutions. However, there is a lot of misunderstanding around both of these terms. Many people associate them with more overt forms of racism, such as the KKK.
A panel of Vanier community members will help us understand the meaning of these terms and how they play out in our daily lives in ways that prevent a large number of people in our communities and families from achieving true equality in society.
Panelists include:


  • Joël Casséus, Sociology teacher
  • Robyn Diner, English teacher
  • Leila Bdeir, Humanities teacher
  • Brigitte Kang-Papadakis, Communications student
