Event description

Description

Based in Montréal, Canada, Robyn Maynard has made it her mission to bring attention to the injustices facing the Black Canadian population. She is a dynamic community leader, feminist author and public intellectual. For over a decade, she has been instrumental in implementing change in the Black community through various efforts such as harm-reduction outreach programs and facilitating educational prison workshops. Robyn has represented the needs of the Black community in presentations to Senate committees and the United Nations. Her goal to promote awareness of the issues affecting the Black community is realized through her many speaking engagements where she addresses anti-Black racism, gender equality and the legacy the slavery era has left on this nation. Some of Robyn’s written work can be found in university and college curriculums, the Montreal Gazette and the following journals: World Policy, Canadian Women Studies, Atlantis- Upping the Anti. Her most recent literary achievement entitled Policing Black Lives: State violence in Canada from slavery to the present (Fernwood 2017), has received praise in the Toronto Star, Afropunk, the Montreal Review of Books, and Maclean's magazine.
