Reni Eddo-Lodge in Antwerp

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Reni Eddo-Lodge's book Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race triggered countless reactions. As a result of her presence at the Passa Porta Festival, her book has now also been translated into Dutch by uitgeverij Polis. During the presentation of Waarom ik niet meer met witte mensen over racisme praat, Reni Eddo-Lodge will talk about structural racism in Europe and Belgium with Tunde Adefioye and dr. Olivia Rutazibwa, as part of the Antwerp festival L’Afrique c’est chic.
and what about Belgium?

To answer this question,we will turn to Olivia U. Rutazibwa who holds a doctorate in political science from the University of Portsmouth and is a former Africa editor at MO*. Especially post-colonial power relations, diversity, Europe in the world, democratisation, (humanitarian) interventions and Afrocentrism occupy her mind and writing. She wrote a decolonial manifesto, Het einde van de witte wereld (The end of the white world), which will be published later this year.

The conversation will be led by Tunde Adefioye, city dramaturge at the KVS in Brussels. In San Francisco, Adefioye obtained a master's degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology, and through his doctorate he ended up in Leuven. In 2009 he founded the slam poetry organization vzw Urban Woorden. In rekto:verso he published a ten-step plan for the decolonisation of the arts sector.
