Better Ally: Looking Within the Black and Africana Diaspora
A session on how to build a stronger Black community
This co-facilitated workshop series focuses on various underrepresented and/or marginalized populations. Our goal of the series is to provide UMBC community members with the basic practices for allyship, specifically for the highlighted population.
This workshop is designed to initiate conversations between black identified students in order to discuss matters that affect various students within the community. The goals of this workshop are to address the tension between Black and Africana identified students in order to promote collaboration between student orgs and other community members on campus. It also will focus on learning more about the differences between the communities in order to form better alliances by embracing those differences and uncovering similarities.
All undergrads, grads, staff, and faculty are encouraged to attend! For any questions or disability-based accommodations, please email Sylvia Anokam, Mosaic Intern for Black and Africana Student Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org or Campus Life’s Mosaic at email@example.com.
