What is it about?

Where do the name of the streets in the African Quarter come from? What's the story of the different street names? Who were Gustav Nachtigal and Carl Peters? We would like to tackle and answer these and many more questions during our tour. Learn about the most important chapter in the German African History.

Anti Racism Run'20

As part of the leadership team at the running club WAYVRUNKOLLEKTIV. I have helped organizing the first Anti- Racism Run in Berlin.

Over 60 people from different nations have come together to run with us and reclaim the streets of Berlin.

As part of the run I have shared some historical events for participants to understand the streetnames and memorial plaques we have passed on our route.

 

Together with the team and our Co- hosts such as E.O.T.O e.V, labelnoire Berlin, Black Brown Berlin, Sankofa Kita e.V., Schwarze Filmschaffende Berlin, BIWOC Rising and more, we have been able to create an unforgettable event!

The goal is to decolonize, deconstruct the existing structures that are so harmful to Black and Brown and other marginalized bodies, through knowledge and fun!

Many thanks to all runners that day!

“We need to stop hiding this dark part of history. It has to be told and if the schools won’t do it, we do it ourselves.”

“I believe we can create a better world for our future generations by educating ourselves and the people around us about history. Facing the truth might be painful but absolutely necessary in order for the world to heal.”

“I want to promote the narrative that colonialsm has done more harm than good. Again, those people who were colonialised and their future generation must know everything that happened, so that colonialsm will never happen again.”
