Arts prof moderates Black Lives Matter panel

Wed. Sep. 1, 2021

On August 26, the G20 Interfaith Forum hosted a webinar Black Lives Matter: Structural Racism, Bigotry, and Inclusion. The event was co-sponsored by the University of Winnipeg, the International Academy for Multicultural Cooperation, and the Fondazione per le scienze religiose and featured a panel moderated by UWinnipeg's Dr. Eliakim Sibanda, Professor of History and Chair of the MA in Peace and Conflict Studies. Dr. Glenn Moulaison, Dean of Arts, states "Dr. Sibanda's expertise in human rights is sought after the world over." He adds that, "Black Lives Matter: Structural Racism, Bigotry, and Inclusion gave us a thought-provoking view on the perniciousness of racism while bringing to the fore possibilities for human rights advocacy. I thank all three panelists Dr. Afua Cooper, Dr. Samukele Hadebe, and Dr. Adam Muller for their presentations.”
