The Journey: Black Leadership Navigating Institutional Spaces – ARCDO

Event Overlay

The Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office (ARCDO) invites you to register for our upcoming programming in February in recognition and celebration of Black History Month at the University of Toronto.

Join ARCDO and Hart House for a film screening and discussion centered on Black women in leadership navigating institutional spaces. Navigating the realities of anti-Black racism within varying intersectionalities calls for Black leaders to engage a level of hope, determination and strength within their professional journeys.

Come together to engage this critically important dialogue with one of Canada’s most prominent and revered champions of equality and inclusion for Black community, Hon. Dr. Jean Augustine.

Film Screening of Steadfast: The Messenger and The Message

Steadfast: The Messenger and the Message brings us the uplifting story of the Honourable Dr. Jean Augustine through her first-hand account of her struggles and triumphs told in her own words. It also includes interviews with people who know her personally such as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; former Prime Minister of Grenada, Dr. Keith Mitchell; the first Black Miss World, Jennifer Hosten; British actor Joseph Marcell; Grammy-nominated singer Freddy Will and several Members of Parliament and political leaders in Canada. Through re-enactments, the film depicts the courage and determination with which Dr. Augustine fought for the rights of women and African-Canadians.
