The Spectrum of Blackness-Diversity within the Black Community Learning Session

As we continue dive into Black History Month what does it mean to celebrate the spectrum of Blackness within the Black/African American community? What are barriers to doing so? This session will cover the impacts of colorism and the importance of seeing the diversity within the Black/African American community. We will examine how institutions and organizations create harm when engaging with the Black/African American community in a universal/stereotypical way.
