After a successful series of lectures in 2021, Evolutionary Psychologist and author Christopher Grandison returns to the Centre to share more of his expansive knowledge on Race and Racism from an evolutionary perspective. In the second installment, he dives deeper into the scientific research and data on Race and discrimination. Each class will explore the contemporary manifestations and impacts of Racism, and take an in-depth look at the landmark social and legal precedents that created the racial hierarchy.
At the end of the series, delegates will be well informed on how to utilise indigenous culture and psychology to build racial unity and soft power, imperatives for community progress and transformation.
