Doing the Work: A Space for White People Working Against Racism
October 8 @ 18:00 - 19:30 CESTFree – NOK100
Know your history, know your present.
October 8th marks the beginning of Black History Month Norway.
Our session next Thursday is divided in two: first, we’ll delve into myths that enable racism (eg “migration is a new phenomenon in Norway, so we’re not used to people who are different from us”) and explore some moments from Black Norwegian history with activist and champion for diversity and inclusion, Rahwa Yohaness. She is the founder of Manifold Norway. Second, we will go through the basics of adding and editing a wikipedia article, so that you can add an important Black Norwegian person to our shared annals. Bring a laptop, tablet or smartphone, and your curious mind.
You do not need to have attended previous sessions to join us for this one.
