Tuesday, October 18th, 12pm, online
Join us for a lunch chat and let’s talk about how Blackness connects us.
Being Black is wonderful. It is strong and soft and magical and creative and it is most definitly complex. It is no one time moment – or person – it changes and liberating our Blacknees needs individual process.
Blackness is, in aspects, constructed in conformity with the norm, just like everything else. To talk about differences that need to be pointed out we need spaces, braver spaces as well as safer spaces. What does intersectional experiences within Blackness mean, what effects does that have on our Black Bodies? What different perspectives on Blackness shall we talk about and re_center more? How can we create a community where all kinds of Blackness are welcomed and accepted?
Moderated by Juliana Kolberg we will talk with Ginnie Bekoe, Christelle Nkwendja and Red Haircrow.
This space is for Black People only and will take place in English spoken language.
