Event description

Description

The vile barbarism of racism is the principal psychosis of the modern world. The idea of races, as in referential to racism is the fabric of that psychosis. A fabric so engrained in European culture that people seldom notice it’s there. Small example, the subtle assertion of superiority on a census form where white appears at the top of a seemingly natural hierarchy. It is in these veiled structures that racism plays out, in abstractions that keep the population in perennial obedience to its rule.

The other psychosis, from a Pan-African view, is the tragedy of fractured identities in people of African descent. This internalised self-hatred and inferiority that mares the African psyche. As an African, the irony is that to challenge racism is also to challenge how one self has been racialised as a colour. It is to search how deep these colonial vestiges have taken root in the African soul, not just in our societies.

Over two evenings of ground-breaking lectures, dynamic historian and author Onyeka Nubia helps us to meet that challenge. In four powerful lectures he will lay out an untold history of the pseudoscience that created classifications around colour. Helping us understand how they became erroneous sociological constructions and built into the modern world. If we are to overcome the ideological myth of white superiority and black inferiority that’s deeply embedded in our society and consciousness, then we must start with and understand its history. If you think live untainted or free from the doctrine of colourism and racism? This series will make you think again, this is the silver bullet.
