‘Black Men and Racial Patriarchy’ – Ornette Clennon, workshop

When: Mon 20 October 2014 18:30-21:00
Where: G51

About the workshop:

The workshop will invite participants to discover the meaning behind "racial patriarchy" as it relates to them. The workshop will take the form of facilitated discussion groups where "racial patriarchy" will be deconstructed by the participants before the groups think about and devise strategies for resisting it. I would like the participants to leave the workshop appreciating the subtle ways in which living within a racial patriarchy can hold us back and active strategies for calling it out and resisting it.

This workshop is limited to 20 participants. It is aimed at black men in particular but is open to all. Please purchase a free ticket to come along to this workshop.
