In honour of African Heritage Month, The School of Social Work Diversity and Equity Committee presents: Free public viewing of the award‑winning film, Ninth Floor, followed by a Skype conversation with Rodney John
Ninth Floor, revisits “a watershed moment in Canadian race relations” – the 1969 Sir George Williams University controversy. The film examines the reflections of a group of Caribbean (then) students who protested the racism of their professor in the classroom at what is now Concordia University.
Rodney John, is the film’s main protagonist and we are honoured to be able to Skype with him after the film.
Screening will be open to campus and distance students as well as the wider Dalhousie community.
