Celebrating Black History, Excellence, and Community

Magnifying glass with a heart in the centreAt the Innovation Hub, our mission is to design an equitable campus experience for students to flourish in and recognize at the core of our work are the diverse voices of students and communities across U of T.

In the broader society we live in, anti-Black racism, oppression, and inequality is well-alive through the long-standing systems that continue to be in place. To dismantle anti-Black racism, we must understand the lived experiences of Black individuals, educate one another, and look inwardly at our own biases in order to move towards a more equitable future.  

If you are an ally interested in learning more about the Black experience, we have compiled a list of upcoming events at U of T and the greater community, along with podcasts, films and shows recommended by our team. This by no means is an exhaustive list and we welcome you to comment down below to share additional resources!   

As we celebrate Black history, excellence, and community we would like to take a moment to recognize that the Black experience should be acknowledged year-round to truly dismantle racism across our institutions, government and society.
