This is part 2 of 'Activism Works - Black Pete is Racism' where Lieke Koningen, Simone de Bies and I discuss why Black Pete is racism, and how it is connected to the Dutch colonial legacy and linked to institutional racism. We focus on the importance of recognizing power relationships and being antiracist. An we discuss how an inclusive Sinterklaas festivity can look like and how kids are ready to be educated on racism.
Above all though, we recognize the long-lasting resistance struggle around Black Pete is Racism, the people who have been speaking out in the streets, in schools, in nurseries, workplaces, at family dinners and so forth.
We honour activism as a creative endeavour and are inviting you all to be worthy of our times, to step up and say not in my name to racism, oppression, intimidation and injustice! Choose your model of activism, what speaks best to you, be artistic and creative about it and let's continue making positive changes together.
Host: Stella Saliari
my guests and I contest and deconstruct narratives, and passionately recreate with the aim to change systems and perceptions. We want to elevate a generation that is feminist, antiracist and empathetic. Our conversations flow into each other and leave room for the unexpected. Salt is love, community, solidarity, a collective, healing, creating. It is intersectional, full of stories, movement and change. It insists, evolves and transforms. It is a commitment.
