Decolonize Groningen invites musician and activist Pravini Baboeram for a screening of her music documentary "The Uprising".

Over dit evenement

The Uprising

In this music documentary Pravini Baboeram tells the story of resistance against racism in Europe. With commentary and experiences from academics and activists, the Dutch-Indian singer/songwriter offers a decolonial perspective on the anti-racism movement in the Netherlands, UK and France. She not only provides an analysis of the history and legacy of colonialism, but also a vision on strategy for the future of the movement.This documentary zooms in on collective challenges of communities of color. In nine self-written songs Pravini connects the fight against Blackface, the struggle for the recognition of colonial crimes that the Netherlands has committed in Indonesia, the fight for the liberation of Palestine and the struggle in the political field for an inclusive society. “The Uprising” offers a unique view of the resistance against racism in Europe through the eyes of people of color.

Why this film?

'This film tells the story I was looking for but couldn’t find. Countless films have been made that touch on issues related to racism. But very few of them actually address the link with the colonial past and the common challenges different communities of color face. And none of the films I encountered focus on the European context and current struggles of people of color.'

Panel discussionAfter the screening of the film there will be a panel discussion/Q&A with, of course, Pravini herself. Decolonize Groningen is considering inviting additional speakers. This will be announced on a later date. The moderator of this evening is dr. Anjana Singh, historian at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen of South Asian and Global History of the early modern period; History of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) in India and Asia; Indian Ocean Port Cities and Trading Communities; and the Social History of Knowledge.
