Society & Culture

In our last episode, we discussed how biases in elementary and high school are a barrier to equity for Black students—but the conversation doesn’t end there. Hannan Mohamud is a law student at the University of Ottawa involved in anti-racist activism on campus, and the co-host of Is This For Real. In October 2020, Hannan spoke out against 34 professors who wrote an open letter in support of a colleague who had used the n-word in class. We reached Hannan to discuss how anti-racism in education is a key part of Canada's commitment to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goal Agenda of "Leaving No One Behind."CREDITS:Host: Tokunbo Adegbuyi Producer: Ellen Payne SmithAssociate Producer: Sabrina BrathwaiteExecutive Producer: Katie JensenMusic: L CON
