We speak to two PhD candidates at McGill who are studying critical race theory about the history of slavery in the context of McGill and Montreal. Rachel Zellars is a PhD candidate in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education at McGill, her research focuses on children in slavery in Canada and institutional racism in public schooling and Rosalind Hampton is a PhD candidate in Educational Studies at McGill, whose research examines the social relations between Black people and the university.
