Closing Speaker: Jamilah Dei-Sharpe

Jamilah Dei-Sharpe is currently completing a PhD in sociology with a focus on Black studies and decolonial pedagogy including Black masculinity, African diaspora studies, critical race and gender studies, as well as transformative and anti-colonial education. Her passion for digital advocacy, as shown in this project, also grounds her doctoral work, “Black Masculinities in Canada: A Documentary on Black Empowerment and Innovation” supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholarship Award.

From her academic to grassroots work, she endeavors to pluralize and humanize higher education for the next generation through her multidimensional roles as active facilitator, research and educational consultant related to critical pedagogy, QTBIPOC advocacy, cultivating decolonial spaces to learn and gather. She co-founded the Decolonial Perspectives and Practices Hub (DPPH) and the National Black Graduate Network and is a member of Concordia’s Anti-Racism Taskforce.
