The Black Lives Matter movement and migration are helping to fuel the debate about Europe’s colonial past. To what extent does colonialism still shape European society? What questions should we be asking ourselves?
Afropean: In search of identity
What do Black people in Europe have in common? The British author and photographer Johny Pitts embarks on a journey from Sheffield to Paris, Brussels, and Berlin. He is searching for common ground and encounters contradictions.
