La voix des femmes noires

Modi Ntambwe and Tracy Tansia

Moderator: Reine Nkiambote


Until 6 March 2022, the AfricaMuseum is hosting the exhibition Human Zoo. The age of colonial exhibitions. The age of colonial exhibitions. The exhibition shows images of black women and tells the tragic story of the South African Saartjie Baartman, also known as Hottentot Venus or Black Venus. In this MuseumTalk, black women let their voices be heard. What is the legacy of Baartman's story? How do black women create a decolonial image? And what is the importance of role models like Beyoncé?

On Wednesday 23 February 2022 at 7.30pm, podcast creator and moderator Reine Nkiambote will talk to Modi Ntambwe and Tracy Tansia. Ntambwe is a community worker, journalist and social entrepreneur. She wrote about feminism in the book Being Imposed Upon, a collection of reflections on being a black woman in Belgium. Political scientist and writer Tansia contributed to Afrolit: moderne literatuur uit de Afrikaanse diaspora.

As part of the exhibition Human Zoo. The age of colonial exhibitions, the AfricaMuseum presents a series of discussions on the exhibition, (de)colonisation and (anti)racism.
