Black Like Me 613 is excited to bring back to you BLK FROST, a holiday season community feast!
Come feast on some good food, Blackness, and love.
When? Saturday, December 15th, 7 PM
Where? The Carleton Food Collective‘s G(arden) Spot (329 Bell Street South)
This follow-up to BLK FROSH is a holiday gathering to give students a break from exams, and offer those who aren’t going home – or have holiday plans yet – a chance to chill with some friends, relax, play some games, connect with non-student community peeps, and maybe most importantly, feast on some good food!
Don’t forget to register through Eventbrite to confirm your attendance (and anyone you’ll be bringing along). We’ll need to know how many people need feeding. 🙂 The more, the merrier!
And please do email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or message us with your dietary and/or access needs! Use the tagline ‘BLK FROST‘.
***This event is being held on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory. Meaning that this land is Indigenous land and it will be respected as such. We invite everyone involved in this evening to take a look at what that means to them and their intersecting identities, and further their understanding of how colonialism affects all of us.
For Black people, this especially involves looking at how our presence as folks who did not ‘settle’ on this land in the same way as white people, and instead were most likely forced here (directly or indirectly) by factors of white supremacy, still perpetuates harm against Indigenous people that we are responsible for. This also involves acknowledging the often overlooked presence of Black Indigenous people who have to deal with both anti-Black racism and colonialism in very different ways than others.***
