Course Description

Giselle and Syrus have been involved with organizing, activism, and education for the past 25 years. Their journeys and lessons in solidarity began inside Canadian Penitentiaries through work with people serving life sentences. Their journeys into Blackness and Indigeneity -- on homelands and in Diaspora – inspire their expectations and demands for new worlds to be born in our lifetimes. This workshop of the Decolonizing Education Certificate by the Centre for Indigegogy will explore how to build and sustain pathways and strategies into Black and Indigenous solidarity on Turtle Island and beyond. Inspired by Octavia Butler's Earthseed: The Books of the Living, this module will explore self and systems, complexity and change-making, historic memories, and Afro-Indigenous Futurisms. Participants will consider Indigenous & Black perspectives and knowledge in relation to land, water, sky, and universe far beyond the narrow framings of life, death, and freedom enforced by settler colonialism, white supremacy, and anti-Black racism.
