  • Can Black Masculinity be Decolonized?: A Documentary

    My doctoral project seeks to identify Black men's performative strategies to transgress adversity, cultivate, and empower diverse communities in Canada. I centre the Black male experience within the Black Canadian struggle, historicized and grounded in Black men and women's progressive work and solidarity. This documentary employs Black feminist, decolonial and critical hip-hop studies to complexify Black masculinity within the social sciences, illuminating all Black people's indispensable contributions and epistemologies to the Canadian social fabric.

    The Decolonial Perspectives and Practices Hub

    We are a student-led hub dedicated to facilitating and co-creating decolonial learning environments at Concordia University, the greater Montreal and transnational communities. We help faculty, departments, students, and community organizations design multidisciplinary workshops, training sessions, research projects, and multimedia media initiatives that cultivate QTBIPOC expertise and voices through an anti-hierarchical and collaborative approach.

  • The Anti-Racist Pedagogy Video Project

    The Anti-Racist Pedagogy Video Project is an initiative developing a public database of decolonial, anti-racist, and social justice educational materials created by faculty, staff, students, and community activists at Concordia University. As a response to the need for digital and anti-racist educational resources, this project offers proactive techniques for combating systemic racism within and beyond the classroom. Supervised by Dr. Kimberley Manning, principal of the Simone de Beauvoir Institute.
