Blackface screening flyer

 

African-American filmmaker Roger Ross Williams goes on a journey to understand why the notoriously liberal Dutch feel compelled to dress in blackface during the annual holiday tradition of Sinterklaas. How can a country that boasts of a multi-cultural society and liberal attitude be so oblivious of its own colonial past? The documentary premieres Monday, Nov. 30, on CNN Digital. We will organize a Q&A with Roger Williams, Jennifer Tosch (Black Heritage Tours, student Public History), Nina Jansen (research assistant “Our Colonial Hangover”, Bsc. Media & Culture) and Jessica de Abreu (European Network for People of African Descent & StopBlackface.com).

Check out the official trailer here.
