On this night, we talk about the black European Identity. On a continent with so many cultures, nationalities and identities, what ties the Afro-Europeans together, what should we focus on and how can we connect the history to the present?
We have an intimate, indepth conversation with Rokhaya Diallo, journalist, author, filmmaker, and activist for racial, gender and religious equality. She published several books on racism, among which Racism: a guide, Me, racist? Never! Scenes of ordinary racism and How to talk to kids about racism. Together with Francio Guadeloupe, we search for another discours to talk about race and racism within Europe. Often, the American discourse is used to talk about these issues, but is that fruitful and useful, what can we borrow and what should be defined in another way?
