Discovering Black Cluture by Kate Dorozhkina

Discovering Black Cluture by Kate Dorozhkina

Add to favorites

This is an exceptional session because we will be talking about so-called "Black Culture", the contribution of people of African descent into literature, as a clue to understanding and interpreting their way of thinking, their rich irresistible imagery, their outlook and values. 

Why is this important to us, who live in a pretty mono-cultural country?

First, we need to broaden our horizon, discover the pleasure of diversity and get a more balanced picture of the world;

Second, awareness of these contributions will help us establish contacts with the Blacks, since we will have something in common to talk about;

Third, it's just interesting!

Those, who have ever listened to Kate Dorozhkina, know that her sessions are dynamic, full of vivid examples an humour, and analytical and informative.

You can prepare yourself to comprehend Kate's talk by viewing this TED by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian writer, who speaks about the danger of narrow mindedness:

" I left Nigeria to go to university in the United States. I was 19. My American roommate was shocked by me. She asked where I had learned to speak English so well, and was confused when I said that Nigeria happened to have English as its official language. She asked if she could listen to what she called my "tribal music," and was consequently very disappointed when I produced my tape of Mariah Carey. She assumed that I did not know how to use a stove. What struck me was this: She had felt sorry for me even before she saw me. Her default position toward me, as an African, was a kind of patronizing, well-meaning pity. My roommate had a single story of Africa: a single story of catastrophe. In this single story, there was no possibility of Africans being similar to her in any way, no possibility of feelings more complex than pity, no possibility of a connection as human equals."
