Purpose: The purpose of this event is to explore how AfroFuturism informs Our knowledge in Social Work/Social Science fields. How we will Go Beyond what Beyond White Social Work means and its destination to explore the impact on emphasizing, listening, centering Black voices, as often Black experiences/pain are utilized as tools for others' learning.
We do not see ourselves historically in the conversation of social work Beyond being subjects in Our classrooms. We have come together to organize a community event to present social work beyond a white professional framework, and dive into exploring the Black Struggle and the optics of Our contribution towards liberation.
The sessions will explore Black Womxn, Hypervisibility/Invisibility in Spaces, Environmental Justice, Transformative Creative Arts Movements, Black Veterans, AfroFuturism and AfroWomynhood Exploring Creative Impact on the Diaspora, Beyond Allyship: Anti-Racist Coherence and Afrofuture Consonance etc.
This event is part of the University of Michigan's School of Social Work SEED Orientation week, and is free and open to all. For more information please contact Florence Alexander, Yusef "Bunchy" Shakur, Lauren Davis, Nyshourn Price, & Daicia Price at email@example.com
