mit Felicia Lazaridou

We would be delighted for you to participate in this roundtable discussion facilitated by Felicia Lazaridou of The empowermentalist, a transformational psychological service in Berlin. Focusing on the divergent responses to sexism and racism in modern society and in academia, Felicia will facilitate a discussion about the fact that it is far easier in academia to gain acceptance that sexism is widespread, and how the historically lower numbers of female professors can be attributed to various structural obstacles amounting to institutional sexism. Consequently, there is less resistance when taking effective actions including gendered initiatives. Felicia argues that by contrast, it has been far more difficult to gain acceptance that racism or even unconscious racialised bias exists in academia. Institutional whiteness is a problem the higher up the ladder we go in academia. Felicia believes there needs to be an inclusive and intersectional revolution to change the culture of academia! Representation is one aspect but is everybody treated equally?

Felicia is a PhD student in the department of psychiatry and psychotherapy at Charitè, in addition she provides anti-racism and feminist workshops and individual counselling.

+++BPOC ONLY+++
With the term „BPOC only! we point out that these workshops and events are aimed exclusively at people who position themselves as Black or Brown. That means people who are part of the African diaspora, those who experience racism and are categorized as non-white by the white population. In order to give racially discriminated people an opportunity to articulate their thoughts within a „safe space“, without experiencing exclusion and avoiding the paternalism of a majority of white participants, we create certain spaces exclusively.

Gesprächsgruppe

Let’s talk about…Eltern Schwarzer Kinder – Umgang mit Erfahrungen und Retraumatisierung!

Mit Tebbi Nimindé

+++Nur für BPOC+++
Mittwoch, 30. Oktober 2019
19:00 – 20:30 Uhr
Eintritt frei – um Spenden wird gebeten.
Anmeldung unter: info@afropolitan.berlin

Let´s talk geht in die nächste Runde und wir möchten über das Leben, Erziehen und Begleiten von Schwarzen Kindern sprechen. Aus der Sicht von Eltern, aber auch aus der eigenen Erfahrung heraus. Können wir unsere Kinder als Schwarze Eltern und Bezugspersonen besser schützen oder sind wir gelähmt von Retraumatisierung? Was hätte Euch als Kind geholfen und welche Strategien können wir daraus für die nächste Generation ableiten? Ein weites Themenfeld und ich bin wie immer gespannt auf eure Meinung. Kommt vorbei und lasst uns darüber reden!

+++BPOC ONLY+++
Mit der Bezeichnung „BPOC only!“, möchten wir darauf hinweisen, dass diese Workshops und Veranstaltungen ausschließlich an Menschen gerichtet sind, die sich als Schwarz (B = Black), positionieren. Das heißt Menschen, die der afrikanischen Diaspora angehören, jene die Rassismuserfahrungen machen und von der Mehrheitsgesellschaft als nicht-weiß gelesen werden. Um Schwarzen rassistisch Diskriminierten die Möglichkeit zu geben, ihre Gedanken innerhalb eines sog. „Safe Space“ zu artikulieren, ohne Ausgrenzungen zu erfahren und Bevormundung einer mehrheitlich weißen Teilnehmer*innenschaft zu vermeiden, gestalten wir gewisse Kurse exklusiv.
