Local Struggles for Justice, SOSA and the Marshall Commission
April 4, 2018 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This panel discussion will trace from the Marshall Commission (1988-9), on which retired Sociology & Sociology (SOSA) professor Don Clairmont served, to work that academics and community activists at Dalhousie and beyond are doing in the area of Black and Indigenous justice. Panelists will reflect on the university and department's entanglements with social justice issues, the impacts these have had on Black and Mi'kmaq Nova Scotians, as citizens and students, and the past and present state of relations between dominant Nova Scotia institutions (education, justice) and Black and Mi’kmaq communities.
Speakers include: Don Clairmont, Lynn Jones, Michelle Williams, Afua Cooper, Diana Lewis, and Jane McMillan.
