This class is for participants who attended Part 1 or who already have a deep knowledge of the history of systemic anti-Black racism. Part 2 will dive deeper into the ways in which anti-Blackness is a foundational aspect of modern formations of settler colonialism, anti-fatness, and patriarchy. We will examine these various axes of oppression so that we may engage in our multifaceted liberation movements with the full understanding that without Black Liberation we cannot achieve collective liberation.
