Black Studies at TMU

Please visit our website for the Black Studies Minor for more information.

This new interdisciplinary minor launched in September 2022.

The Black Studies Minor provides students with an interdisciplinary approach to exploring the histories and cultures of Black diasporas, ideologies of anti-Black racism, themes of Black resistance to oppression and exploitation, and the range of political strategies and community-based mobilization tactics Black activists have employed to counter systemic and institutionalized oppressions and fight for social justice.

Created by Dr. Mélanie Knight, Dr. Anne-Marie Lee-Loy and Dr. Cheryl Thompson, the minor housed in the Faculty of Arts, launched with courses from several departments and schools within the Faculty of Arts, The Creative School, Faculty of Community Services and the Ted Rogers School of Management.
