The Mirror of Racism

The recent wave of protests against racial discrimination around the world has drawn attention to that fact that racism in western societies is rooted in the very foundations of the system. What steps must we take to build a society where difference is not synonymous with discrimination?

The journalist Tania Adam moderates this discussion about the possibilities of decolonising the future with a focus on the situation of racism in Spain. She is joined by the Roma activist Pastora Filigrana, university lecturer expert on religious diversity Mostafà Shaimi, the African feminist academic Esther (Mayoko) Ortega, and the French philosopher Elsa Dorlin, who researches into systems of domination. The artist Daura Mangara, brings music to the session with some of his songs in protest against racial discrimination.

 

Participants: Tania Adam, Elsa Dorlin, Pastora Filigrana, Daura Mangara, Esther (Mayoko) Ortega, Mostafa Shaimi
