Rebecca Seward-Langdon

Institute Coordinator

Rebecca Seward-Langdon graduated from the University of Toronto's Global Affairs program. Prior to that, she completed her Bachelor's Degree at Carleton University, double majoring in African Studies and Political Science. Her passions and drive stem from Black and African independence writers and scholars, including Frantz Fanon and Kwame Nkrumah. Working on Indigenous land care taken by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Huron-Wendat, and now home to many First Nation, Inuit and M├ętis communities, Rebecca is interested in implementing anti-colonial practices throughout her work and daily activities.
