This episode focuses on how structural racism manifests itself inside institutions, specifically within the German education system and is a Repost from International Women* Space. Jennifer Kamau from IWS discusses the prevalence of racism in schools in Germany with Céline Barry – a Berlin-based social scientist whose research centers on the topics of racism, feminism and intersectionality in post-colonial contexts. We also look at how these dynamics were heightened during the Covid19 lockdowns – affecting many of our lives and our children.

Céline is active in various anti-racist initiatives such as the Berlin Muslim Feminists and KOP – Campaign for the Victims of Racist Police Violence. Céline worked at Each One Teach One e.V., which offers counselling for Black, African and Afro-Diasporic people and carries out monitoring on anti-Black racism. They are also involved in campaigns such as „Ban! Racial Profiling!“ and „Death in Custody“.
