The University of Manitoba has announced that it has signed the Scarborough Charter on anti-Black racism and Black Inclusion. UManitoba’s newly established Anti-Racism Task Force will drive the implementation of the charter, which will hold its first meeting in February. “The University of Manitoba is proud to endorse the Scarborough Charter,” said UManitoba President Michael Benarroch. “Its creation was a joint effort from voices across the country and within our institutions. Everyone from scholars to administrators to students had the chance to inform this pivotal document. It is an important declaration: we can and will do better in the area of anti-Black racism, and we will grow stronger because of it.” UManitoba| CBC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
