In creating a forum to discuss gendered racisms, ‘Complicit No More’ aims to encourage more generous and ‘conscientious’ feminist inspired dialogue. The panel event will highlight themes and challenges for black feminism and intersectionality, tackling topics that have been framed by Eurocentrism but which are also a part of intra-oppressions: how we relate to our selves, to each other and our communities. The winners of the #EíghtWomen Awards for Women of Colour will be announced before the panel event. I will discuss my essay, ‘Toxic Wars vs. Conscientious Feminism’ which you can read on Huffington Post UK.
I’m delighted to be taking part in Afropea Now!, a two-day symposium accompanied by film screenings, concerts, a workshop and exhibitions in Linz, Austria. The symposium will feature local and international artists, experts and activists who will discuss aspects of African-European identities and cultural productions from various points of view. With contributions from across Europe and Africa, “Afropea Now!” will focus on the social, cultural, historical and artistic interaction of African and European cultures in a global world regardless of national boundaries. My presentation is titled “Portrayals of African Women in Europe Historically and Today“
