Niama Sandy, Dr. Ọbádélé Kambon, Dash Harris, and Elle Williams join moderator Risikat Okedeyi for a conversation on activism, identity, and how to see and dismantle the oppression around us.
We may be focused on dismantling white supremacy from the outside, but our internal work is just as important. Hear from activists, educators, artists, and strategists from NYC, Trinidad, Panama, Ghana, and South Africa as they unpack the many layers of white supremacy in our community so that we have a place to begin the healing.
Presented by Tastemakers Africa, The Thread | Conversations Beyond The Return is a monthly-ish series of conversations unpacking the potential for Pan-Africanism in a post-"Year of Return" moment for the culture. Since its inception as an in-person event in Washington, DC The Thread has gone virtual reaching nearly 7,000 people from 50+ countries. On July 5th, 2020, The Thread Volume V Vol. 5 took us inside, kicking off conversations of healing within our community and then turning to solutions that question the system in the west that we've adopted as truth.
