6 days of exchange around the culture of remembrance : a cultural journey based on the experience of a participant in the DAICOR project.
How can diversity, equity and inclusion be implemented in the culture of remembrance of the USA and Germany ? A question that raises the interest of many experts on the culture of Germany and the United States. In this context, 15 actors are currently meeting in Berlin and Hamburg to exchange on different approaches, to identify possibilities for improving their work and to effectively integrate a culture of remembrance. In line with the objectives of the Black Academy, Nicole Amoussou’s participation in this exchange programme will give the Black Academy team new impetus for its work in making the knowledge and stories of Afro-descendants visible. This will also contribute to the definition of strategies for a better Advocacy in the context of taking responsibility for the traumatic facts of history but also an Advocacy for the visibility of the victims and heroes of the colonial period.
With this introduction, we are taking you with us on a virtual tour around the 6 days of exchanges and visits to memorial places that the DAICOR project group did. In the next 6 articles we will share with you the facts of the past but also the critical reflection of Nicole Amoussou and the Black Academy as well as the proposals and demands that we think should be included in our lobbying work.
