20 Questions and Answers on Black Europe Paperback

The book puts Black people in Europe at the center of analysis, defines and interrogates the key aspects of Black Europe, and describes and elaborates the circumstances of Black people across twelve nations in Europe. Who are we, how did we get here, (historically) where are we located, what are our economic, political and social circumstances? What are our main organizations, what are our priorities and what actions, activities are we involved in – what is our agency – to confront institutional racism and achieve social justice. e primary focus is on citizenship and institutional racism – rather than on immigration and assimilation. An analysis of gender is at the core of the book and examination of how gender ideologies and institutional practices shape citizenship, politics, social inequality; as well as describing the main Black women’s organizations, their activities and priorities for knowledge production and social justice.
