“Eat ‘N Talk Series” #1 by The Momentum Table

January 15 @ 7:00 pm 11:59 pm CET

In the Majority world, every aspect of community life happens around food. This is how news, information, or opinions are shared and discussed, may they be happy, intense, or controversial. In this same spirit, the “Eat ‘n Talk Series” by The Momentum Table want to open conversations with and among African, Afro-diasporic and Afro-descendant communities, off the beaten tracks of white and Western readings of our realities.

In a perspective of unpacking the rich and complex historiographies of the African continent, Namareg and Jihad are discussing Land & Identity in Northern Africa in the first event of the series. An open conversation with participants wants to look into power dynamics governing access to Land and dispossession from it, in the past until today. We want to share our knowledges and create a space centering perspectives and stories in the shadows of colonial and hegemonic discourses. We want to explore similarities and differences in the evolution of Land politics in Northern Africa. We want to observe the Northern part of Africa as a space of movement and shared histories, moving beyond the colonial divide between Africa North and South of the Sahara, wrongly perceiving one of the largest deserts in the World as an idle space.

During this participative conversation with all of you, we will share a welcome drink and a gourmet 2 course meal prepared by the talented Private Chef, while Namareg and Jihad will animate the discussion with input from their perspectives on areas of current Sudan and Morocco.

The “Eat ‘n Talk Series” conversations are meant to be a safer space. We envision this evening to be as enjoyable and delicious as informative and respectful. It is an exclusive private space for African, Afro-diasporic and Afro-descendant BIPoCs. Please be weary of your positioning when participating. White persons (from inside and outside of Africa) and persons from an exclusively European descent are asked to refrain from participating.
