The Colour Line: Inequity and Balance of Power in a Post-Colonial World with Takura Donald Makoni

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Much of the western world associates African heritage with slavery, perceived as an issue of the past. This talk explores beyond the confines of slavery, looking at broader themes such as colonialism, imperialism and the global balance of power.

It recognises that not all individuals of African heritage necessarily have a direct connection to slavery but that many of those peoples share a historical link to colonialism, a mindset that goes hand in hand with slavery.

Takura Donald Makoni is Zimbabwean, born in Leeds and raised in Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe and Botswana. He is currently the Policy Officer at the African and Caribbean Support Organisation NI (ACSONI).

Organised as part of Frederick Douglass Week 2024.
