HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Members of Youth Research and Evaluation Exchange (YouthREX) based at the School of Social Work at York University discuss the current groundswell of protests and ask: Will this be the ONE that finally makes undeniably visible the metaphoric knee on the necks of Black people that anti-Black racism feels like every day? Will this be the ONE that finally energizes us all to dismantle anti-Black racism forever so we can create a better future for Black youth?

Their conversation was framed by the findings of their report, Doing Right Together for Black Youth, that found that the number one issue for Black youth and their families in Ontario is widespread anti-Black racism that runs through all of Ontario’s institutions and systems (including the educational, child welfare, and criminal justice systems, as well as the labour market). This conversation sparked a part two, which you can also watch on our Knowledge Hub.

Featuring Dr. Uzo Anucha, Provincial Academic Director of YouthREX / York Research Chair in Youth and Contexts of Inequity and Associate Professor at the School of Social Work; Cyril J.
