Mariéme Reflects: “What does being black mean to you?” #blacklivesmatter

“We must fight #Racism. I’ve suffered racism discrimination all my life in Africa and the West, but these past couple of weeks have given me the courage to speak up. I am hurt to see another black man die unnecessarily. Black men are criminalised, women like me silenced and underestimated.” We have started a new series where “Mariéme Reflects” on her experiences. She opens up for the first time on what she finds uncomfortable to talk about but is obligated to share, educate, inform, and transform minds. Here is her conversation with our Creative Director @miwaza.
