Black women’s leadership in resisting and responding to gender-based violence

Date and Time


Virtual: Zoom

In-person: Guelph Black Heritage Society - 83 Essex St. Guelph, ON. 


Join us for a Fireside Chat and meet and greet with the University of Guelph’s Activists-in-Residence

To recognize and celebrate the vast contributions of Black women to naming and responding to misogynoir and all forms of gender-based violence, please join the University of Guelph’s 2024 Activists-in-Residence, Nneka MacGregor and Dr. Marsha Hinds Myrie, for a chat about Black women’s leadership in resisting and responding to gender-based violence, locally, globally, and transnationally, and the role of Black men as allies in this work.

Nneka and Marsha’s conversation, hosted by Don Mahleka, Equity Manager at the Guelph Community Health Centre, will explore how Black women (and men) practice everyday resistance, research & activism, and policy advocacy in service of advancing justice for Black women, girls and gender-diverse folks, and safety for all Black people.  

This event is hosted by The Department of Political Science and The Department of Philopshy through The Grounded and Engaged Theory Lab at the University of Guelph. The GET lab encourages the use of empirical research methodologies and socially-engaged studies to help ground normative theorizing in people’s lived experiences.
