Presentation: Wrong Identity, Can I Please Tell My Story?

Founder’s Note / Mar. 10th, 2021

Presentation Link: Wrong Identity, Can I Please Tell My Story?

This presentation was the first of a three-part event that is a part of my ongoing documentation and archiving project via public discourse. This particular event included a presentation, four-person panel conversation on “Belonging & Returning”, which I moderated, and was followed by a time capsule exhibition that sought to transport people into 1950s/1960s GoldCoast-Ghana via music, video, newspaper cuttings and other archival material.

This event was devised as part of The Black History Month celebration in Hamburg, which is a month-long series of activities centered around Black, African and the many intersectional communities in Hamburg, Germany.

This presentation ended with an experiment on how to create instant racial power balance or make space safer for any group that feels oppressed. Watch till the end and see for yourself.

    Love what you said about fighting not only the historical storytellers but also the contemporary ones. Our job at this point in time goes beyond countering narratives but also (re)presenting and nuancing our own stories/truths within our own contexts. Thanks for this presentation. It is powerful.
