Creator of “The Anti-Black Racism Course with Selam Debs”
The Antiracism course is designed for you to develop a critical thinking lens towards equity, belonging and transformation. They provide Anti- black racism guides, workshops, and courses to help individuals:
- Learn to have uncomfortable conversations about racism.
- Address their own unconscious bias.
- Learn about tokenism, white privilege, white fragility and white supremacy.
- Empower youth and yourself to have a strong anti-racism lens to stand up for dismantling systemic racism.
To my Black and Brown Sisters and Brothers, Daughters and Sons and non-binary family, I dedicate my work to you. I created my Antiracism Course with one purpose in mind – To create an equitable world for us, for our families. I live and breathe the hope of community where we are seen, heard, savoured, nourished and uplifted.
To my white allies and accomplices, I honour your willingness and readiness to unlearn, unravel, and dismantle systems of privilege from which you benefit, but which leave so many of us, disenfranchised and fighting to thrive. I created my Antiracism Course for you – to re-learn the histories of our Black, Indigenous, and Communities of Colour that were erased from our education systems. I am grateful to be walking on this journey with you.
