Since the 1960s, students of color have fought to decolonize campuses across the Americas. One of their goals was to introduce studies related to their own experiences and include their history outside of the dominant Eurocentric lens. We will discuss some of the  original demands and achievements, and compare them to the current wave of decolonizing academia.

The Reflect to Revolutionize workshops are devoted to practicing critical thinking and meaningful self reflection as pathways to liberating transformation. These facilitated discussions will shine light on the ways that oppressive systems and legacies of colonialism and slavery affect our daily lives and choices. We will rethink and redefine our notions of self, purpose, power and community. Our goal is to provide an active space where we confront our own trauma and fear in order to rise stronger as a collective.
