Event Description

On 10 December 2020, on the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, proclaimed by the United Nations in 1948, the Gender Equity and Social Justice Tribe is joining the worldwide screening of I Am Not Your Negro by Raoul Peck. With it, we intend to emphasise our responsibility to process the history of colonisation and racism in detail. 400 years after the first slaves were taken ashore in chains in Jamestown, Virginia, the equal treatment of whites and People of Colour is by no means established. Over nearly four centuries, an estimated 10-12 million enslaved Africans were transported to the Americas, mainly by European traders. More than 250 years after the abolition of the Atlantic slave trade, equality – whether in the Americas, Europe or other regions – has remained out of reach.Join us as we unpack the work we still have left to do to create an equal world for all.About I Am Not Your Negro:This award-winning 95-minute documentary film from 2016 is based on the unfinished novel manuscript "Remember This House" by James Baldwin (1924 - 1987). In the film, Director Raoul Peck attempts to capture the racism of US society in a chronological panorama from 1890 to 2014 by means of cinematic collage and the life story of three friends of Baldwin from the civil rights movement who were murdered in the 1960s: human rights lawyer Medgar Evers, black Muslim Malcolm X and Baptist pastor and civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.James Baldwin was one of the most important writers of the 20th century. Books like "The Fire Next Time" (1962) deal with racism and sexuality. Raoul Peck is a filmmaker and screenwriter who became internationally known through the documentary "Lumumba: La mort du Prophète" (1992) and the feature film "Lumumba" (2001), among others.------This event is brought to you by the Gender Equity & Social Justice Tribe at Impact Hub Berlin – where change goes to work.The Gender Equity & Social Justice Tribe is meant to be a safe space for open conversations, between people with diverse voices and perspectives. It aims to host conversations that matter and raise awareness on how global challenges are connected to gender equity and social justice and their impacts on how we experience the world, in a casual, non-intimidating way.
