BLACK SYMPOSIUM NOIR

March 15 @ 8:00 am March 16 @ 5:00 pm

The black symposium noir is a bilingual community-based and non-university affiliated gathering organized by graduate students and post-graduates with the support of the Uptown Institute and Chalet Kent, a community-rooted non-profit organization and youth centre in Côte-des-Neiges. The symposium’s focus is to advance the radical traditions and possibilities of Black studies, études noires and the broader landscape of Black thought.

From March 15 to 16 2024, the symposium will convene scholars, artists, and activists to share their work that explores Blackness and anti-Blackness within the context of Montreal and Quebec.
