Session 1
Thursday, 30. September 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS : Session 1 Identity | Self-Worth | Purpose (Facebook-Event)
We are more effective, impactful and fulfilled in life the moment we recognise and fully embrace who we truly are, and what we are worth.”
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
In this first session, we focus on core questions such as
Who am I REALLY?
What is my SELF-WORTH? and
What is MY ROLE within the community?
To do this we shall leverage on your multi-dimensional identities paying special attention on attributes such as immigrant, second generation, African, Person of African Descent, African European, Bi-racial etc. At the end of this session you would be able to redefine and recalculate the sum total of yourself- worth and identify ways on how you can best use it to serve yourself and the community.
 
When you know what you are truly worth, you know how to bring yourself to the table and when you know how and where to seat at the table, your presence alone makes all the difference.

Session 2
Thursday, 7. October 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS: Session 2 – The permission to heal (Facebook-Event)
As Africans and People of African Descent brandmarked as immigrants, we are all wounded souls who seek for some form of collective healing by organising ourselves in communities. The truth is that we can’t really honestly heal as a collective, until we the individuals who form these communities have consciously and proactively healed or at least given ourselves the permission to heal.”
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
With the knowledge of who you really are, the awareness of yourself worth and your purpose gained from the first session, this one will help you identify areas of your life as individuals and as a community that need personal and collective healing. The practical GloBUNTU Tools and Tips that come with this session will empower you to activate and accept your own healing, as well as help you learn how to proactively engage in and grow your healing as a collective. At the end of the session you will also be able to identify the intersections and overlapping between individual, community, historical/generational and or emotional pains that you need to let go to allow yourself to heal, unapologetically.
 
###############################
 
Session 3
Thursday, 14. October 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS : Session 3 – How to balance individual and Community Needs (Facebook-Event)
“In ever self-organised community, every voice counts, irrespective of how loud or gentle it is. The moment we learn how to listen to every one of our voices with respect, especially in moments of disagreement, we become stronger and with that we have an advantage over forces outside of our community “
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
This adjourning session is a GloBUNTU Facilitated Open Session in the form of an “African Palaver” or “Legotla”. The power of an African Palaver or Legotla session lies in the fact that it is probably the oldest and most participative leadership concept in the world. It is a bottom up concept that brings members of a community together and gives them the time and space to proactively listen to each other, with the ultimate goal of coming out with answers to their own challenges and questions. The beauty of this approach is the fact that when people are have the space to develop their own solutions, they have ownership over them. With that ownership they are in position to expand, extend and grow their solutions at their own pace, whenever needed and on their own terms and conditions. In other words, this concept helps people get to know themselves and their collective wisdom and strength much better. This in turn helps them to tap into their diverse expertise, experiences and strengths to develop their own survival strategies. This process makes them active and valuable members of the community.
 
The mission of this session is to encourage community members to use the knowledge and tools they learned from the two previous sessions to pinpoint and share their current challenges, expectations, opinions, fears, insecurities etc. The facilitation process will assist them to come out with enabling tools and tips that they can repeatedly use to better navigate their daily live as individuals and as a community during and beyond the current pandemic.

(English language with summary translation to German)

KEYNOTE speaker Prof. Kehinde Andrews on

Kehinde Andrews (PhD Sociology and Cultural Studies | MA Social Research | BSc Psychology) is Professor of Black Studies at Birmingham City University and director of the Centre for Critical Social Research.

Kehinde has written opinion pieces for outlets including The Guardian, The Independent, The Washington Post, CNN, The New Statesman and others.

Our children are not included in German school curricula, let alone receive an adequate education about African or Black history. As a result, they lack confidence in our cultures and cultural heritage….

How can we Black communities start to cooperate and organize to change this?

Our children are not included in German school curricula, let alone receive an adequate education about African or Black history. As a result, they lack confidence in our cultures and cultural heritage….

How can we Black communities start to cooperate and organize to change this?

How can we begin to educate our children ourselves and autonomously as to make us less dependent on those institutions that have been designed to reject our community values?

What happens when Black children are socialized in a White world where Whiteness is the dominant norm and Blackness is an „inferior“ deviation from that norm?

What does it do to our children when the historical, cultural, scientific, and technological contributions of African civilizations and people are systematically whitewashed and appropriated, while the colonial and neoliberal crimes against our cultures are just as systematically denied?

Which (pre-)school and other autonomous offers does our community already provide today, which projects are currently under construction and which further offers should be developed beyond that in order to strengthen the self- and historical consciousness of our children and our communities?

Unsere Kinder werden in den deutschen Schullehrplänen nicht berücksichtigt, geschweige denn erhalten sie eine adäquate Bildung über Afrikanische oder Schwarze Geschichte. Infolgedessen fehlt ihnen das Vertrauen in unsere Kulturen und unser kulturelles Erbe….

Wie können wir Schwarze Communities anfangen zu kooperieren und uns organisieren, um dies zu ändern?

Wie können wir beginnen, unsere Kinder selbst und autonom zu erziehen, um uns weniger abhängig von jenen Institutionen zu machen, die dazu geschaffen wurden, unsere gemeinschaftlichen Werte zu untergraben?

Was passiert, wenn Schwarze Kinder in einer Weißen Welt sozialisiert werden, in der Weißsein die dominante Norm ist und Schwarzsein eine „minderwertige“ Abweichung von dieser Norm darstellt?

Was macht es mit unseren Kindern, wenn die historischen, kulturellen, wissenschaftlichen und technologischen Beiträge Afrikanischer Zivilisationen und Menschen systematisch weiß übertüncht und vereinnahmt werden, während die kolonialen und neoliberalen Verbrechen gegen unsere Kulturen ebenso systematisch geleugnet werden?

Welche (vor-)schulischen und anderen autonomen Angebote gibt es bereits heute in unseren Communities, welche Projekte befinden sich schon im Aufbau und welche weiteren Angebote sollten darüber hinaus entwickelt werden, um das Selbst- und Geschichtsbewusstsein unserer Kinder und unserer Communities zu stärken?
