Black Magic Woman Festival

On November 9, 2012, I was one of the international guest speakers at the Annual Black Magic Woman Festival in Amsterdam. The Festival takes place every year in the Bijlmer, Amsterdam’s Southeast neighborhood that’s home to many of its Surinamese and Dutch Antillian citizens. Myself and fellow American speaker Sheetal Gandhi, were asked to give a MindMep which apparently translates as a Mind “Slap.” I think we accomplished that pretty well based on the audience’s response to discussions about race, feminism, individuality and cultural heritage.
