What is happening!?!
Debates on historical commemoration.
Anti-Black racism and the activism of Black Lives Matter.
The Truth and Reconciliation Report and Indigenous Activism.
Escalating white supremacy and the rise of the “Alt-Right.”
Re-emergence of overt anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and anti-immigration sentiments.
It’s time for a Teach-In, and we are here to make it happen.
As history moves into the present, we are living through perilous times. So why not learn from the past and carry that teaching into the present?
This Teach-In is free and open to the public.
Bring your questions and your curiosity.
