CCS Special Webinar Series: #BlackLivesMatter.
August-September 2020


Our Seminar Series has moved online - please join us for webinar discussions on the theme of #BlackLivesMatter.

Over the last few months the hashtag powered Black Lives Matter movement has brought America to a turning point. Protesters braving lock down regulations and state retaliation have come out in their numbers to oppose police brutality and injustice against black people. Their calls have reverberated across the globe resulting in fresh debates around defining racism, dismantling institutions of oppression such as de-funding the police, transforming cultural spaces and building solidarity.
Join us as we engage with scholars and activists at the forefront of this turning point.

Facilitators: Danford Chibvongodze & Andries Motau
