It's OK to Be Brown, a CYC Education Day 2018 presentation from Dr. Jaspreet Bal
In May, 2018 the Canadian National Child and Youth Care conference was held in Vancouver, British Columbia. Prior to the actual conference was an education day pre-conference. Over the course of the summer we will be posting many of these presentations. This first talk is by Dr. Jaspreet Bal. In her presentation she discusses race in CYC education and considers how and when faculty of color use their bodies to teach.
Dr. Jaspreet Bal is a Professor in the Child and Youth Care program at Humber College in Toronto as well as a Child and Youth Care Practitioner (CYCP). As community organizer, activist and educator, her practice involves radical youth work with underserved populations across North America. Bal serves on the Board of Directors of the Sikh Feminist Research Institute and Kaurs United International, and the advisory board of the Sikh Research Institute.
