Instagram-Livetalk: Critical Whiteness and cultural appropriation with “No White Saviors”
Recent global developments have shed light on racial inequalities on a structural and broader level, questioning structural racism and (white) privileges. In this livetalk, we talked about why critical whiteness is more important than ever, in which sense cultural appropration is dangerous and what can we learn from anti-racist, educational work on social media.
No White Saviors (NWS) is an advocacy campaign led by a majority female, majority African team of professionals based in Kampala, Uganda. The campaign was founded in reaction to abuses committed by white missionaries and development workers in Uganda. The NWS Instagram account has developed into one of most vocal outlets on matters of critical whiteness generally ever since.
The event was hosted by the project and Instagram channel Postmigrant Europe (@postmigrant_europe)
The discussion was moderated by Josephine Apraku, Founder of the Institut für diskriminerungsfreie Bildung, and held in English.
